I had been looking for a while and wanted a thin example that was originally toned and not secondarily peripheral toned from being housed in one of the two types of Wayte Raymond slide cardboard pages. I've sold thick Norse varieties in all grades from MS62-66, but never owned or handled the lower mintage thin. I wasn't really looking for a slider, but this one stopped me in my tracks. Thanks to coinsarefun for the stop sign octagon template crop aid as I only do squares and circles.

Edited to add: The obverse is also double struck with slight overlap which can mostly only be seen without a loupe on the obverse upper wording and the horns on the Vikings helmet. With a loupe the dates and sword have slight overlap also.

To Err Is Human.... To Collect Err's Is Just Too Much Darn Tootin Fun!
