    ROSS RIFLE on the 2014 ''TOONIE''.

    [/SIZE]Going thru some change that had been collecting in my truck's ash tray ,I noticed one of those '' odd toonies''. it was dated 2014.....its the one with a young lad running up to a soldier marching.....the soldier and others look like they are carrying ROSS Rifles./..........easy to see they are NOT Lee ENFIELDS....

    Thought it very interesting......
    cheers W.C. / Glenn

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the soldier is carry a Lee Enfield. It is much easier to see in the ten dollar silver coin.

    Sorry, the URL I provided is worst than useless. Fortunately, I downloaded a picture.

    I hope this works.
