Obv: Legend.
Rev: Legend, with mint and AH date.
Pere 181; Album 1317.

Thanks for all the kind comments. Sorry @Echizento, I have no idea what the legend is. The auction house did not provide it. I am going to look at other examples online to see if I can come up with at least an approximation of the legend.
