I Have Searched For Nearly Seven Years
After looking for seven years for a 1925 2 Kronur coin that was anything better then a VF may have come to light. About just a little over a month ago i got a email from Brunn Rasmussen Auction House in Denmark, Well I have been getting these notices for six years now and none of there auctions never held any Icelandic coins that I wanted until this one.
With no thought of finding any thing in the auction I lazily browsed the catalog and came up to a listing stating that they had a 1926 2 Kronur a few other Icelandic coins and some danish commemoratives, Well there is no 1926 2 Kronur they must have meant a 1929. Well I clicked the listing and then the picture and they had a zoom in feature so I zoomed on to the 2 Kronur thinking it would be a 29 and HOLY-SH*TTTTT its a 1925 and it looked great, But the only problem was that they only showed one side of all the coins, well for a month up till this passed Sunday I checked 2 or 3 maybe more like 6 or 7 time each day waiting to be outbidded, I even got up early Sunday morning to make sure no one outbid me well to make a long story short I won the lot for 100 Danish Kronur under estimate. Well now comes the other waiting game for them to ship it to me. The coin looks to be possibly a AU so my fingers are crossed while waiting for the mail.
