I bought these raw from a gentleman out west..at the time of the purchase I was vaguely familiar with them so I figured I'd take a gamble. From what I've been told they are something like a salesman sample. I figured I'd share them for input and opinions. It appears these pieces are pretty rare..the reverse is the first and only ever certified at PCGS while the obverse is now the second one graded..




feel free to call me Will. I'm a 20 year old collector from the GTA area of Ontario.

my PMs are always open, whether you have a question or simply wish to talk!

Those are more than cool. Congrats and thanks for sharing. Brass coins eh....marked gold. Too bad it's not the real McCoy. My hats off to you for not trying to pull any shenanigans with them. Some people still have scruples, and you sir are one. I don't want to think of the shadiness that could come with coins like this. They look great.

I have a few of those in different sizes, I even sold one to DBM I believe...

This is my set (I am missing both of those ):

I do indeed have an obverse trial piece I purchased from SPP-Ottawa.
An interesting and uncommon piece that won't be going to PCGS or leaving my collection.
