Requester description: 1916 no inscriptions, there is a number 10 on one side with 2 sprigs of leaves coming almost all the way to the top of the coin and the stems crossing under the 10. with the date written under where the stems cross. the other side almost looks like a coat of arms, with a sheild in the middle which consists of three wide horizontal stripes with the middle stripe being lighter than the top and bottom. what looks like a crown on the top and feathers on each side.
