Despite its poor condition, this coin just sold for €276 (only available on French ebay). Once again I believed that I was the only one who had seen the real coin behind the poor pictures.... :o

That has happened to me so many times...it is actually pretty rare when I am the only one that noticed (or only one that really bid). It is good to have dreams though!  ;D
