Alles prima und unkompliziert abgewickelt. Gerne wieder.
A very small coin shipped in a very LARGE box ;-) Otherwise, coin is exactly as pictured, delivered cross-Atlantic very quickly, and this was a perfect transaction. Excellent seller. Thank you.

Coin took a while to arrive; little concerned by lack of communication from seller. However, quality of the coin is excellent (better than the description) & far outweighs the delay. Would recommend.
I'm pretty sure the coin I received was not the one pictured in the auction. I'm sorry, for I would have liked that one. However, the one I got was still appropriate for the price paid, so it's a wash
