I found this 1904 Indian cent today in a box of UK coins my mother sent me.
Can anyone tell me if this is a mint error or has some one overstamped it.
In fact any information would be nice.

here is a link I will also post the Pic in
alt.binaries.pictures.numistmatic.

My guess is that it was supposed to have been an encased coin, but there was
no encasing collar around the coin when it was put in the press.  The
partial letters on the reverse are from the die that was to have struck the
collar with advertising or a slogan.

I don't know about the Indian cent.

The Mexican coin is a 1 Real. The date is difficult to make out. Perhaps 1840?

Looks like it says POSIT, raised. It also look like its added after the coin
was struck, so it may fall into the counterstamp catagory. Could it have
been struck with a "NO DEPOSIT stamper?
