It came as part of a lot of four from Egypt - I paid what I did because of the bottom two tets.
They always say, its in the eye of the beholder..those are nice coins you got too. .when I spent the past 40+ years collecting american coins, I would grab all the cheap "ugly" looking coins also because to me it was a good deal and even thou coins were worn they were special to me. That and they had silver in them...
I've won some .99 opening bid coins by searching for misspelled listings - most folks will search eBay for a 'silver quarter', but quite a few sellers misspell it and list a 'silver quater' instead - some of my silver stack pieces were won for less than melt that way
So, a grand total of $4.50......Hell ya!!
