    Yeah was a "what the hell" kinda bid more to see what it would sell for... never expected to win it for a $20... Ok it's dinged but one hell of an interesting hole filler for my colonial set :D

    Some people prefer the uglies. All I can say!
    I have a few ugly coins myself. We all do. That is one I'd be proud to insult!
    Heres one of mine. Certainly not as cool as yours (and was less)

    Of course, I'd love to see if it does become yours.

    I am a big fan of the Rosa coins, it appears to be a penny I believe? Syd Martin wrote a book on them, great for attribution but yours might be a little tough. I was checking out a holed ugly head last year before the coins shows shut down. They are really rare, I think less than 10 known to exist.

    Here’s my ugly colonial coin. 1710-AA 30 Deniers. Cost was $3.

    I don’t think they’re supposed to be razor thin.
