Keep plugging away. You'll never find that " first one" unless you keep looking.

Here is a great opportunity to request images of both sides of the coin.
(Probably only a misaligned die, but with out the reverse images I'll never know for sure.)

I wonder if the misaligned die effect is from the editing software that crops the image too close on one edge?

Thanks for responding.

Can you post an image of the reverse to see if it might be misaligned or off center?

I agree the reverse image would be very helpful.
