Hard to tell from the images, but this is an easily duplicated type of error. The reverse looks more like a chemical spill that discolored the coin. The obverse has the sweeping edges, I'd expect, but also has signs of the chemical spill. I'd call this one suspect or damaged.

Also, please don't post the coin in other topics. We need each coin to have it's own topic so we can help and it doesn't hijack other topics.

I saw it post in my topic and it was deleted. Thanks.
