Looks fine. If it's damage, it's the perfect shape of the bottom of the I and R.
The letters are raised and not reversed
I agree, probably photo manipulation.
These three are die fillings, retained after strike.
Usually when a lamination falls off the coin it will keep some of the details of the die. If you look closely the details of where the dentils should be are there.
So, personally I would call this a loss of lamination.
I think you missed the part where the bottoms of RI are in the denticles. Red lines below are pointing to features that are identical in both sets of RI.
There can be really only one way that you get a raised looking image that reads correctly any where on the coin it is:
1. Being double struck
2. Struck thru die filling
I could be way off had a few beers and BBqing.
It is either that or has been altered, just my 2 cents.
The issue at hand is
Coin is not in hand
When will it be in hand?
Off hand, soon I hope.
You so picky
Maybe, but think about what you are saying it is and how it got there. The letters can’t be switched if it’s genuine.
Well OBVIOUSLY he's using the hunt and peck method of typing and his left finger is ever so slightly longer...probably an old table saw or joiner accident
