Hey everyone, hope all are doing well. I need help identifying the type of error present on the rim of this merc. I can see the letters faintly in the stretched rim on the reverse. I've looked or error ref and went through all the typed and can't figure it out. Thanks in advance!

Guessing this is not unusual for a coin with this much wear.

Looks like it might have been in a jewelry bezel at some point.

@val, can you please add the diameter of this coin to the thread? Also, does the edge reeding look pretty normal? Thx.

Thank you guys. I'll look into the mounting and what to look for. That didn't even cross my mind and it should have. I have love tokens. I guess I was thinking a hole for jewelry. See you guys are a wealth of info not to be taken for granted. Much appreciated.
