Interesting! I do remember hearing that aluminum was a precious metal in the 19th century.
I'm sure you guys have heard about the Napoleon plate story, right?
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!

Hey I know that coin! It's ours! LOL. Want in hand pics?

Edit: To specify, it belongs to the shop I work at. I remember packing this one when we went to baltimore last year.

A piece this scarce should have pedigree information with it. I believe there were only 5 to 8 of these and until fairly recently 4 of them were still in original holders of full proof sets all in aluminum. (I've had the chance to see one of the sets still in the original holder, amazing. But that set has now been removed from the holder.)

And that's the only pic your shop owner will post? For 22K I think the people deserve better. I'm sure you would agree Grape

We had an issue where eBay removed listing photos from our listings randomly. We're trying to figure which listing were affected and fix them. So in that regard thanks to Bobby for doing my job!
