I'm no expert so I'm not going to post anything because I don't know. However, it might be of some use if I WERE TO POST THE REASON for posting MY GUESS!
Easy my friend. I understand your concerns and suggestions. Please comment on mine...
The black garbage AKA residue, is usually the result of cleaning and usually not helpful when determining the authenticity of a coin.
As far as the die break; a die break would not be unique to one particular coin. It would be found on thousands. That lead me to think it would have been researched and assigned a VAM ID. After a quick search I was unable to confirm a variety on VAM World. But I suggest you conduct further research before drawing any conclusions.
I was checking out VAM's as well to see if it was known and couldn't find anything either. Still searching....
It would keep you in the loop for this post...
I don't think that scab thing on the reverse is a die break. It looks like someone put bubble gum on it to cover up an unwanted mintmark before they made a casting of it. Weak rim at 12 to 2 o'clock on both sides. Excuse me while I get out my 10' pole.
That thought crossed my head as well. If it’s not a “P” mint mark the value goes way down so it would be worth it for a scammer to do that and try to pawn it off. Conveniently located, isn’t it?
