    That is understandable. Also the soft drinks are not good for you. i suggest that you stick with beer or better, tequila and be sure to use enough. Much safer than the VM test, though possibly more time consuming, would be for you to do more research. Attribution and provenance could easily double or triple the value.

    If it is an unstamped blank that missed the dies at the mint it's considered an error coin. Not sure if has much value. If there are only 3 in existence i have two. One is a 5 cent blank planchet and the other is a quarter blank planchet .

    Out of curiosity, what does the edge look like?
    (PS- If you keep pulling our individual legs about the value of ghost coins much longer, there will be an epidemic of mostly old farts stumbling in circles.)

    Nice to see you getting into the spirit of ghost coins. I suspect the OP is either consulting with experts or doing additional research before weighing in with conclusions that could be an apparition.

    Too bad there isn't a tequila vending machine. That would be a VM test that is almost worth failing!

    The edge is smooth. It's not rolled and has no ridges. The entire Ghost Coin is smooth all over. Like a baby Terminator's behind.

    There are things you can replace. And others you cannot. The time has come to weigh those things. This space is getting hot. Whoa! This space is getting hot!

    Is it ever too early in the morning for a transcendental quote? Although this quotation from Henry David Thoreau is clearly intended to be a message about finding harmony with the natural world, as it is clearly prefaced with "We need the tonic of Wildness" and concludes with "We can never have enough of nature", perhaps the middle passage could be somewhat appropriate to this discussion of ghost coins in general and this one in particular, and still provide a slight and temporary respite from threads seeking specific identification and accurate conclusions:

    "At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unfathomable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed to us because unfathomable".

    Be well and happy out there, today and always - RM
