Sofonisba Anguissola
1532-1625

STOLEN COIN

Isn't it lovely?
A nice leeuwengroot 
(gros au lion, gros compagnon)
from medieval Flanders.

Instead of arriving in the mail
as it should have,
this coin was
STOLEN BY A POSTAL WORKER 
 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (PostNL).

Thanks a lot, jerk.
(sent REGISTERED MAIL and everything!)
