Rulau, Miller NY-985, struck in Brass with a Reeded Edge.

With the iconic obverse motif featuring a man puffing on a cigar with the eyebrow raising legend  NO PLEASURE CAN EXCEED THE SMOKING OF THE WEED, and the no nonsense WOODGATE & Co. reverse.

The piece itself is lovely golden brass with some prooflike reflectivity in the fields and some delicate toning in pretty shades of rose and sea green.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
