"The heavy circulation evident makes me think that an awful lot of people saw the coin, handled the coin and spent the coin without realising how special or different it was. Which in turn implies that when the circulation happened, the coin did not show this damage"
By the way, just to answer to Sap, it happened to me to find some very rare out of collar errors or partial collars coins that have circulated (especially from the period of the Kingdom, here in Italy). They are called "Bordo Largo" here (large edge). The people not always care or see the errors, also numismatists, believe me.
In the case of this 10 francs the edge look different, normally is flat, here is porous, that's way I liked to get your ideas on it.
