About This File


I hope this finds you each numismatic in great shape and good will.......I am looking for some professional advice and I am believing I am in the right place.

Gentlemen, and Ladies, if so......I have come across this 1965 Churchill commemorative coin and need some guidance.  I have done extremely thorough research on this coin as well as the BOAC Cunard lines.

From all of this research I still cannot ascertain whether this coin is common mintage or is a found Satin Finish.  I do know that this coin was given as a VIP gift to an unknown person of notoriety that either sailed the cruise-line or flew BOAC Cunard, as the 2 did not merge until 1962.  I have researched every available flyer and newspaper that was published in that era and cannot find any mention of this piece being bestowed upon a guest or guests.

Please examinme the pictures I have included and I beg your professional and forthright opinions.  Thank you so much for your time and your future guidance.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with concerns.  I am located in California, USA and there isn't much information on this side of the pond.

Thank you again!
