It is an off-center strike, but it is so damaged, it won't be worth much.

It is pretty blurry when I try to enlarge the photo. Mind taking a new photo with the camera as close as you can? Also, place the coin on a flat surface so the camera doesn't focus on the higher points of your hand.

The coin is in bad shape and damaged so not much value. Most people selling online don't know what they're doing and will say a lot of things based on flawed research.
