'secondary' obverse details are 'raised' on reverse?

eric,
here is a big mistake many make....having 'multiple light sources'.
:eureka:
using 'images' without 1 single source, 'from the side', casts odd-ball shadows, hard to see device 'reflect', & makes the images, as they 'are picked up by the lens', appear different than they actually are.
imaging is a "practice-practice-practice" artform. i'm sure you have seen some examples of how i 'snapped' pics, using different 'angles & lighting', on purpose, to show you how you can 'fool the viewer'.

i like those pics....
i see 'conflicting details' here....i have a wild idea....maybe.
another 'mind-bender'....thanks bud :h
i hope you don't have a big stack of these, for me.....good 4 you though!

can you make out:
1. the 'reversed' (mirrored) date on the reverse (pressed into?)...the final 2 numbers?...i see the '18'
2. can you see any sort of 'outline' of the 'obverse bust details', on the reverse? (pressed into, or 'raised')

i can barley make the last 2 out but they look like 18 not 100% and yes u can make out the bottom of the bust its weird cause it has both pressed in and popped out extra features i would think another coin was pressed into this coin but the raised features make me believe that its a mint error so still just not sure
