Thanks to 'Crusher and others. Your help is much appreciated. Should have been able to attribute here, (Blush). Followed the C3b reverse with the chip on the wreath (of VAM 222 D) which is on this coin. CURIOUSLY, the 228-4 reverse is listed as having C3a reverse. However, this specimen has the C3b ...
