Found this one CRH today. The reverse not so hot, but the obverse is nice.

A decent amount of the inscription is missing--nice find.

Also, look at the obv rim from about 7 o'clock through 12 o'clock. Perhaps some slight misalignment of the dies?

Very nice find and congratulations! It was Struck Through Grease, and it has a slight Misaligned Die (MAD) as well.

Thanks for looking and pointing out MAD, I wasn't sure what to call that.

I'm thinking the reverse is nice as well. Shows weakness and a slight misalignment as well, that leans towards the opposing side compared to the obverse showing the rim gutter. If weight and diameter show to be in spec, I'd go with struck through grease as a likely suspect. Thanks, Doug.

Backup data often or good luck with the recovery process..... SME advice!

Check the weight. If it's normal, thsn it's a Struck Through Grease issue.
