      I think you need to appeal to collectors of British Colonized Coins, maybe residing in UK/GB.


      An example of this for me collectors of USA struck Phillipines, when they were connected to US and USA struck for Panama coins.

      Regardless, owning a USA 5c 1964D on a cancelled India/GB related coin is very appealing error to me. A fine score, good for you!

      I own nothing like it, not even by the closed Gallery Mint with their discontinued USA reproduction dies.
      Had I thought of it, well, then I'd have one or two.

They always look new, like they were never issued & recalled for destruction. Being silver makes them a commodity, worth salvaging the silver scrap to use again another day.
