    I'm thinking a possibility of it being struck on Thin Planchet or a Split Planchet.. The weakend devices on both sides is similar to when it is not fully struck as a normal planchet.

    Can you weigh it?

    I'm curious on the weight as well. noting the way the letting goes along the edge and the weak strike as well.

    I see it the circumference and flatness is basically the same as your true error example with of course more similarities.

    Belt sander then a buffing wheel. Note the shiny coin edges.

    its probably just a picture illusion not shiny edges.

    FYI.. It's just my opinion that it might be the type of Mint Error I am stating. I could be wrong ;)
