A situation similar to yours with this encased cent:
I am not a big collector of encased coins. But when I saw this one on eBay a few months ago, I couldn't resist the patina on the 1 cent 1947.
However, I was a bit disappointed when I received the token to notice some damage on the 1 cent (In the middle of the Obverse), probably from the moment it was inserted in the ring.
Anyway, I am still satisfied, even though I already owned several 1 cent 1947 with a similar or even better eye appeal.
Quite the opposite of this other encased coin which was part of a lot that I acquired 2 weeks ago, and which is most probably the most worn I had in my hands (Maybe a pocket piece?).
