    (After skimming, and not a deep read)

    It’s very interesting. The wear doesn’t bother me. I can buy into the “pocket piece” theory. Very neat piece and definitely worth getting encapsulated by PCGS or NGC.

    It looks OK to me, but take that with the large caveat that I am not an error/variety specialist and there is also the fact that the Chinese counterfeiters have become increasingly skilled in recent decades, and they know full well that people pay big money for US error coins.

    I’m in suspense, waiting like everyone else for @Fred Weinberg to respond to the Bat-signal.

    Crossing my fingers for you. I hope it turns out to be good. It’s very cool looking.

    If you’re in the mood for a slight Darkside diversion, there is a PCGS certified double-struck error coin in my collection, though it isn’t an Indian cent. It got plenty of circulation wear, too.

    But that might be comparing apples and oranges.

    Thank you for your support and all the help you have been giving me since I arrived at CT. You have made this a wonderful experience and I appreciate your honest opinions even when they don't go my way:) That is an awesome coin by the way. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to reading about it.

    redbook is not a good price guide for anything, especially volatile areas like pm and errors..best to check old sales on ebay and other auction sites, most errors are one of a kind so a price guide kinda goes out the window...
