Just wondering if there's a market for this type of coin and what thoughts are for grading.

Since it is most likely gold plated, I would say the value is basically silver melt price. It would be considered a cull coin and not gradable.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

I'm thinking the original photo has a yellowish cast (white balance off). Check the color of the 2x2 holder. If color as shown is fairly accurate then plating may be an issue.

Consider posting new photos--outside the 2x2 if possible. Thanks.

I'd say G/VG sharpness, not that it means anything.

the coloring could be from the lighting on this one. what bothers me is the flatness across the highest areas on both sides and couple areas that look like they were polished. the flatness does not stand out to me as being from strike. the overall look of the coin; lettering, date, olive branches are saying an AU coin but imo the coin was modified in some way. AU details. its a common coin and to answer your question, really no market for it other than a possible filler

Plated, only worth melt value.
