Hello, I may, or may not, have a satin finish 1965 Churchill Crown. Attached are a few pics of it. It actually weighs 28.09 grams, although I have seen many coin sites entering their weights at 28.28 grams and above. My problem is I am not sure what I have here. Is it a common or is it a VIP satin. I understand that the mint struck some in sterling I have done exhausting research about BOAC Cunard and it was 3 years prior to the 1965 minting that BOAC and Cunard merged. I don't know if this commemorative coin in the display case was given to a VIP on a cruise or on a flight. I have went through all available newsprint during the era and could not find anything substantial. I am sincerely hoping a numismatic here can give me some info, or point me in the right direction. Is this a Satin Finish or a common? Is it possibly a silver strike because of the different weight? I am thanking you in advance for any info you can give me. Thank you very much.
