I would GUESS that there is a unique market for your skills as a service provider. They summit a design and you convert it into working code and send it back machine ready to run . It could be a provider for any profession that requires unique design conversion and converting that into machine code.  That way THEY save all the trouble of the conversion WORK and then take the machine ready code and PRODUCE their product.

YOu will have to do some leg work but as the work is starting to come back onshore your services could be a BIG deal to them. Saves them from having to hire permanent help.

YOu would be a subcontractor

YOu woul d never have to leave home. Just work out a dependable way to GET PAYED before they recieve their goods. Money transfers work real well> JUst let the local police KNOW that you deal in money transfers as an everday thing OR you may get targeted as a Criminal type
Just a thought

Just a suggestion, but it may be worth scanning the image of the coin whilst you have it in your hands. May make a future project one day.

i would attepmt to touch probe and/or laser scan and mill purely for the technical hell of it. vulcanizing it would just be plain out right naughty ;)
