AU [Uncertified]

Eklund-84 variety, struck in Bronze. 20mm.

An interesting and macabre issue struck to commemorate the 1,000th anniversary of the remains of St. Lambert being interred at the Church of Liege.

And this seems to be an appropriate (given the subject matter) terminal die state with a wicked and previously unobserved die break off the skull.

Housed in an ancient-looking carboard pre-cursor to modern coin slabs, this evidently once owned by someone with truly excellent penmanship.

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