    A bit flattened somehow after it left the mint.

    Isn't it just corroded? There's a pattern on the coin but the coin itself appears to still be round. Need an edge view.

  • Thanks,
    Its a shiny coin with no corrossion and the edge of the coin is thinner.

    Defective planchet. Useful as an example but probably not worth much of a premium.
