    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    It had a pin that was soldered on but it must have broken off at some point. That's probably when the holes was drilled in it. I will try to get a picture up

    Very good reading there. I knew they were rare but didn't know why. Probably why I was offered (and refused) $7,000 for it.
    Thanks
