1959-D 1c Mule Auction 2019
in a cross-reference link from the recent dollar mule thread vis-a-vis coinworld, i saw the article linked here and after searching our archives to see what i was sure a thread in the time frame of the article (our archive search feature is not good for this outside 12 months) i didn't see an obvious thread but figure there has to be one, so if so, disregard this one and please link the other one(s). t.i.a.
tried a quick engine search to pull up any CF page but didn't see one.
the barcode will scan but says invalid.
images edited out from coinworld.

some noteable comments from the extensive auction description:
It is important to note here that this coin will not be confiscated as the Treasury Department has returned the coin twice to the owner after reviewing the coin and returning it as genuine. It is also considered legal tender by the Treasury Department.
