Description The seller found this coin and two others (L-107a and N-17a) in a 36 kilo lot he bought at a car boot / church sale in Northern Ireland in 2016. He subsequently moved to Hamburg and never searched the lot. Three years after his return to Ireland he rediscovered the coins and only recently sorted them. As a young man growing up in the 80s he recalls seeing many of these marked coins in circulation. ?We had dual use of UK sterling coins and Irish issued coins and in Irish and Northern border areas it was almost a local hobby to deface coins of each faction.? All three coins show bright surfaces and appear to have been cleaned at some point. Purchased from Paul Healy / Ballygall, Dublin, Ireland. (Ag. 3, 2020) ($2).
