    Thanks for the ID, @JeffC. I could've come up with that, but it would've taken me a little while.

    As to the "blisters", they're some sort of deposit on the coin, I think. Solder? Something like that. Whatever they are, I'm fairly confident they're post-mint (damage) and not any kind of error. You've also got some blue paint or ink residue on there, obviously. If you felt like it, you could try acetone for removing that, though I doubt that would remove the "blisters".

    When I was doing inventory of my hand-me-down collection (which I'm still doing) and came across Thai or Middle Eastern coins, it always took me awhile to (a) identify the year, by looking up and matching each number in the foreign symbols, and then (b) converting that year into our Gregorian calendar. I wanted to do that for this coin, but I decided to eat Tiramisu instead.

    I'll take a bite of Tiramisu over "squinting at the squigglies and scratching my head" any day. ;)
