I acquired this coin around 1965. I was in a coin store in Pasadena Texas when an old man in a huge van drove up. He was very eccentric. It appeared that he and his wife lived in the van and his life was completely consumed with collecting coins. We looked at his complete set of US large cents. Then he pulled out a box of colonial coins. I had never seen colonial coins before and was fascinated. Eventually he handed me this one and told me to keep it. Somewhat shocked, I accepted and have treasured it ever since. It's not in the best condition, but all the features are visible.
