Hey guys,
can someone help me out with this coin if they know what would be going on with it, and if it is a mint error and approximate value if known. I am thinking of purchasing it for $50 and I was not sure if that is worth it or if I should pass on it.

NOT an error.
Has been heavily counterstamped that has destroyed
any value it may have had.
Most definitely pass on it.

Counterstamped.
PMD
A ripoff at $50 unless you happen to collect counterstamped coins.

Not worth anywhere near the price.

Not an error by any means. It's a counterstamped Indian Head cent, but it's nowhere worth 50 dollars though. Take a pass on it, and don't buy it, as it's a ripoff.

PMD (post mint damage caused by a counterstamp). Definitely a ripoff at $50.
Collector of all classic US coinage.

Bad idea to purchase, not a nice person selling it for $50.
