Rare  not listed in Mitchiner. Ex-William Spengler.

Anyone know what the yockers collection refers to?

Thanks Bob..

This coin along with others were bought from Stephen Album by Pankaj at Coin India a few years back...I've been picking them off one by one...I'll do some searching and see what I can find.

 

Thanks again.

Thanks @Sulla80...You and Bob have both come up with the same name...Problem is I cannot find anything on line regarding this collection apart from Stephen Album auctions.??

Here's a couple of photos in hand showing it isn't as "green" as the sellers photo shows in the op.
