The 1970 Football Association Challenge Cup Finals was ranked as one of the greatest FA cup finals and often called the most brutal game in the history of English football. The match between popular football teams Chelsea and Leeds concluded with a score of two to two— making it the first FA Cup Final since 1912 that required a replay. A unique 1970 FA Cup Final Winners’ gold medal was awarded to player Alan Hudson for making 145 first-team appearances for Chelsea FC between 1969 and 1974. This medal is available for sale in Noonans’ upcoming auction of coins and historical medals.
Over 700 coins and historical medals from a private collection comprise the catalog. An 1887 specimen set of gold and silver coins is one of the highlights. The set includes five and two pounds, sovereign and half-sovereign, a crown, and threepence. A very rare coin from the North East Thames, belonging to the British Iron Age, is also available.
