Rare British Cars - The Ford Sierra

  What Is Rare About The Ford Sierra? Ford has always mass produced cars that have been familiar sites on roads throughout the World. The Sierra is no different.

Frankly, the 2 coins, whilst both consisting, to a large degree, of Silver, represent two completely different periods of United States history. And, as such, will evoke different feelings of worth in the minds of different collectors, depending on their familiarity, and affection for stag
