It appears there was some writing on the punch that didn't wasn't rendered well. I have seen my share of counter stamped coins and it's not the same as punching a sheet of metal. The dynamics are different.

Here's but a few counter stamped coins that I have acquired over the years.

may i ask if the "LIGHT SOURCE" was at K7 (7 O'Clock) in the reverse image here ??

... the reason i asked, was to determine if this area was incuse, or protruding out from the coin.

:confused:
are you able to 'read what is inscribed' inside the area on the reverse ?
.... is the lettering 'mirror backwards' ??

Not if they had a two part punch that sandwiched the coin in between. Seems that would work wonders with minimal effort on the perps part.

Hi Danial, thanks for the pics, i see what your talking about, and understand what your saying, but it id definitely different from those two coins, i am for giggles going to take it to a coin dealer here in oregon, Bartons rare coins, and see if he can make out the writing on the reverse, thanks for your patience Don,

They're all different unless they're struck with the same punch, just know this didn't happen at the mint, that's 100% factual.
