This coin was the first released by Lealana, and is the
most common due to its very high mintage. Of these
coins, the ‘first run’ (N/S Black) type is generally the
most desired by collectors. The ‘first run’ coins actually
have a cleaner appearance on the front, because the
‘pitted’ coins have a visible circular ‘dent’ across the ‘L’,
caused by the manufacturing process of creating the
‘pit’ on the back.
Many Lealana coins including this have a fourth ‘subtype’
that is very rare, though its coins technically
belong to the ‘Black’ sub-type. These coins are marked
‘BUYER FUNDED’ even though their first-bit text is
black instead of green as it normally is for such coins.
Of all 1 LTC coins, about 40 have this abnormality
which will henceforth be referred to as ‘Buyer Funded
Black’ or B/F Black for short.
