Its really difficult to come up with new words to describe the beautiful coins you keep adding to your collection. But the best I can do is say this is another stunning coin worthy of the best private or museum collections. Enjoy this beauty!

Thanks much, Paul. I just try to keep adding attractive coins, and unfortunately it requires selling a couple here and there to keep it up.
