    Not much into those kind of coins mainly because no knowledge it appears to be a nice coin though.

    The raised design of a cancellation die is readily seen on the reverse face. Many recent Egyptian errors show cancellation strikes.

    Yes, the cancellation strike is clearly seen on the second picture. Cancellation strikes ordinarily reduce a coin's value, so if this strike followed the second strike, the coin would worth considerably less than what you paid. However, if a cancellation die was paired with a normal die for the second, off-center strike, this would represent a very unusual type of intentional error and would be worth at least what you paid. Your photos are too small, and the resolution too poor, to tell if this was the case.

    ok. thank you for that information. I agree the sellers pics are to small. I will take better pics of it when I get in the mail.

    It was double-struck and then cancelled. As with many such cancellation strikes, the coin lay between a cancellation die and a second coin, which generated a light brockage on the obverse.
