As you can see in the photo, the hologram has missing second 's' error of 'Casascius'.

You're bidding on exactly the coin shown in the photos.  It will be sent inside the coin capsule shown.

Payment

No escrow.  I will PM you with a payment address ending in 211xsbLhT (this deters impersonators of my account).

Shipping

Free shipping and insurance worldwide.  I will use Japan Post's EMS.  This involves some basic tracking which I will provide to you.  According to the post office it will take from 4-7 business days.  The item will be declared as a collectible.

If you want insurance I have to declare the value you pay.  You are responsible for taxes or other issues created by enforcers at your border.  If you don't want insurance, I will declare it with a token value of around 5 USD.

Nothing wrong with escrow. When I am selling I prefer it just so I can have my buyer bid with confidence.

Use a trusted escrow or middleman to protect both parties!

I probably would have had you at least ACCEPTED escrow as an option.  ???
