Additional Information : The coin has to predate the glass. However this would excite a former "colleague" and his abettor as it would present an opportunity to make all sorts of irrelevant historical references to Lincoln being sworn in as president and the start of the American civil war. More pertinent would be the criminal law consolidation acts and the collapse of a tenement block in the old town of Edinburgh, not that we would wish that on anyone.
