Description For whatever reason, the #32 on obverse and reverse are struck backwards. Since the legends are applied with individual punches, this was done on purpose. It may be symbolism of sort, but who knows. There's also a very light "IRA" stamp under Or of 32 Or War. The legend is a Nationalist one, and alludes to the IRA's goal of reuniting the original 32 counties of Ireland under Catholic rule. The coin was among items left in a house the seller bought in Newry, Co. Down in 2016. Purchased from Francis Kelly / Newry, Co. Down, N. Ireland. (Nv. 25, 2017) ($2).
