    You also now have finger prints on both sides of the coin.

    Based on your photos, the normal
    edge lettering has been buffed off
    the edge of the coin, and the
    extra 'stars' are some type of
    damage from contact with another
    coin or something else.

    In the second photo, the copper
    core of the 'plain' area is dead
    center - if you look at normal
    Manganese dollars, you'll see
    that the copper core is not dead
    center on the edge - it's a bit
    higher or lower than centered.

    This is due to how the blanks
    are punched out.
