Perhaps things are different with world coins.
Hope the contrarian likes my joke.

That seems quite a stretch . . . I'm not sure I'd rely on physics to try and explain what you believe.
I am also in the camp of those that believe the CPG and OP coin are different coins. But at this time my problem with the OP's coin goes deeper. The spread of the doubling exhibited by the OP's coin does not appear to be geometrically correct. If the OP coin is a product produced from a transfer die the source coin used to make the die more than likely exhibited this same questionable spread.
And why would some utilize a valuable CPG variety coin for the purpose of producing a transfer die.
Thanks for the tag kSigSteve; I have some reading up to do with this post!
A foreign coin collector with your knowledge of US minting practice and that of the rest of the world is a great asset to this coin forum!
edit to say: I'm not claiming that this should change anyone's opinion but I think I see polish lines on the OP coin and this is a really good explanation of the effect of die lapping.
FYI, I’m not sure that you are aware, but many of the modern struck fakes have heavy die polish lines.
Based on a fairly decent sample size:
WOW! That is a terrific collection. I'm seriously jealous to the MAX!!
Is the shim also fake?
The washer and magnet? No. They just happened to find their way into my bag o’ fakes
Actually, three and the third side can be very revealing.
It’s also a clipped planchet!
I wish I owned L&C. I would have A LOT of fun with this one, before obviously doing the right thing and sending it back to PCGS under the guarantee.
