I have one of the Casascius coins (this one, to be exact) that contains an error: the small lettering on the hologram reads "Casacius", without the second 's'. I'm a inexperienced when it comes to all things bitcoin, as well as all things collectable.

I understand that one can sell these coins for a premium over their BTC value. Where can I put the coin up for sale relatively safely? I'm willing to sacrifice getting the highest possible price in order not to get scammed.

  • I would recommend seeing a professional coin collector for advice.. Its not exactly an everyday item you have there :)

There is a fairly robust market for these on ebay. One sells every few days. I have bought several from ebay with no problems (except for my underperforming post office).

PayPal is a little frustrating but you get used to it.

Be sure to post a good quality photo of the hologram and clearly describe the that it is a V1 error coin.
