Comments

This coin was minted with different collars resulting with both sharp and rounded edge. It is not clear if there is any statistical prevalence of certain type - a lot show in the  picture had them split about evenly and even prevalence of the rounded edge, while another recent lot had a relationship of 19 sharp edge to 1 rounded edge coins. Further analysis is required.
