Ex. H.C.Lindgren – “His legacy lives on in his coins and publications”.

Please excuse my enthusiasm, here is another double struck coin but this time the previous owner was very well known. A spectacular specimen if i may say so myself, i wouldn’t expect anything else from this highly respected collector. Beautiful patina and fine detail, in particular Poseidon.

AE 22.62mm (Thickness 2.54mm), weight 6.19g, die axis = 12h (0 degrees), denomination B.
