    What does that mean for us non-world coin collectors?

    Like the look of the coin. Would happily put it in my book.

    It’s a 60.00 to 100.00 copper coin. First year it was issued but they did create restrikes that are smooth edged not Reeded .
    It’s the first line on here

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Nice job.

    World coins are such a large field.

    Only about 999 more coins to look up. Wee. Thinking about sending some out randomly to some of the YN on site.

    It is fun digging thru bags of world coins like that. My son enjoys going thru the junk bins at the monthly show and picking some coins out. Always fun times.

    Hard to tell from the pictures, but looks about VF.

    VF seems about right to me.
