I believe this one was hammered by a smith
That’s sad. The Smiths were an amazing band. Just picked this up yesterday.

I do not have any blacksmith hammered coins, and not familiar with the band. Did know a couple of real blacksmiths years ago when I raised Arabian horses... Should have had one of them make me a coin or two. Cheers, RickO
i dont have any either but not a bad idea to look some up, might be a new venue
