    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Go with the pros. You either spend $35 to find out it's a fake or you'll net hundreds, if not a couple thousand if it is authentic. I like those odds.

    Especially older international issues - they weren't always precise about "centering". That kinda margin is actually fairly common on older international issues.
    It's my understanding that the margins were narrow because the stamps were printed in sheets, weren't perforated and they were printed very close together, making the margins very small.
