Almost looks like a delicious cookie with bits nibbled from edges! The coin has apparently been hammered quite a bit, given its curves, dips, bends folds and nicks, and well past its heydeys, but in relative good shape overall considering its age and condition. It is not a perfect coin but its beauty lies in its slight imperfection.

And, I would like to add, nice patina that makes the design come out even better. With a complete legend, most collectors would say this is a very desirable coin. Personally, I like workhorse coins, especially when all the details are so clear. So there. ;)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
