    Jim is right again! JC just listed it as 028! Thank you JC and Jim!

    I could not get a decently focused obverse and reverse of this coin, for one reason the coin is very shiny and the die abrasion scratches and die clash on the obverse was making the glare worse and therefore hard to focus. So... I punched some holes in an empty toilet paper roll, it fit perfectly between the scope and the desk with the coin nestled inside of it and it toned down the glare so I could try to focus better!

    Thank you Jon! I enjoy finding spikes and have a bunch of them I haven't taken pics of yet! I have a few really nice ones set aside that I want to get listed... and I will work on the others a little at a time. I just get so frustrated trying to get decent pics! LOL... the toilet paper diffuser was a desperate measure, but it really helped!
