Neat find. Isn't he the king who resigned to marry the American lady, Mrs. Wallace?

Thanks. It's George VI on the coin. You're talking about Edward VIII who abdicated to marry the American. I didn't know that myself, had to Google it.

Thanks, I was happy to find it. Seeing as it has no significant value and I'll just be keeping it for my own collection do you guys suggest I shine it up a bit or leave it as is?

Leave it as it is! Even though it doesn't have a lot of value I think you should leave it as is, but then again, who cares what I think? Good fing tho

These are pretty hard to get over here, I forget the silver mix, but only being 7 years before they ditched all silver content, I think its about 50%. Good find!
