@albert, unfortunately, one of two things may be true - 1) the coin may be an authentic former jewelry piece, or 2) the edge damage is evidence of casting. Although, examining the coin in person, it does not look like a cast coin. I used the shop's loupe - having left my at a previous shop (d'oh!) so I will go back this week and reexamine.
It's priced at a little below $42, which seems retail for this coin.
