This is a strange coin I discovered, And even though it is not Legal united states tender, I was wondering if there would be any premium on it, since it is a blank.
I searched "Gallery mint" on Google and eBay, And they seem to be a company that makes replicas of valuable United States coins
. (I'm guessing the edge lettering is a way of showing the coin is a replica.) I did not find any data on how many "Blank" Gallery mint coins there are though, And I'm still not entirely sure this is (or was intended to be) a coin.
Here are two photos of the obverse and reverse.
Here are a few pictures of the edge lettering. (It says "Gallery mint" along with an odd symbol on both sides of the rim. I'm unsure what the symbol is.)
And this is a size (and rim width) comparison with a Roosevelt dime
and Jefferson nickle
. At first I thought this blank was intended to be a nickle, But it is not wide enough. And the coins rim is much too thick to be a dime.
My questions on this coin, Since it is a blank, does that give it a premium? And what coin was the blank going to replicate? (And is it even a coin, or just a token?)
Any help or info at all would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!Identified - moved to Exonumia forum - Sap
