Badly tooled Kushan coin

I usually avoid tooled coins but this Kushan coin is one of my favorites. I really like the three-fingered Santa Claus but not as much as as the goggle-eyed horse rider. I see this piece more as the equivalent of a hobo nickel than as a damaged ancient coin.

I agree, it could mislead no one but another hobo like the one who perpetrated it, though it's no comfort that utterly uneducable persons get hold of what once were ancient coins. I'm afraid that's life, though.
