Greece 1849 5 Cents

I looked up your coin in the "standard Catalog of World Coins" 5th edition (which is the most current I believe.) The 1849 5 Lepta had a mintage of 374,000. The values for a "Fine" coin are $75, and VF is $250. I guess you have a nice scarce piece there. The uneveness on the obverse in my mind is from a defective planchet (coin blank) and is not damage or corrosion but I would be interested to see what others think about the obverse surface. Assuming 25 Euros is about $50 U.S., I think you got a reasonable price.
