||See similar coin in the Belfast Collection listing. This example has no IRA stamp on the reverse, however. Nevertheless, it was likely issued by the South Armagh Brigade. The seller often attended boot sales in Camp, Co. Kerry in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Afterwards he'd stop at a pub in Lower Camp called the Railway Tavern. Here he would sometimes buy coins from the punters who knew of his interests. This is one of those coins. Political stamps on Half Crowns aren't often seen . The older men in the pub told him that it was a high value coin in the day, and few people carried them. Apparently they didn't circulate widely, much as the American JFK Half Dollar. Purchased from Gerard Clapham / Tralee , Co. Kerry, Ireland. (Jl. 20, 2017) ($5).
