A nice refreshing modern version of the Coat of Arms on the Reverse over the Older styled COA , you know me as I'm more into the Traditionalist style of things. Thanks for the show @silverd510

What’s funny is that I had no intention of buying it initially. It was at a very small coin show in a neighboring town. Less then a dozen stations in an American Legion Hall. Most of the stuff was garage sale type stuff, one guy was way out of his mind on pricing. This one guy had tons of world coins. I was getting ready to walk out when the guy says I’ll give it to you for $12. I said what coin for $12? He pulled this coin out. I actually never even looked at that coin. But I said ok.

That's a crazy story. Like the guy knew you were no nonsense. Cool.

It was pretty funny. The flip had a price of $22 on it.

Another good-looking coin there, bestie! Nice patina on that coin from Spain depicting the general-dictator. Thanks for sharing, bestie.
