Hi all,
Saved this one off to the side. I'm not sure if it is damage or a grease error. The obverse and reverse both have missing devices and it appears to be a greased die. However, it could be damage also. Would appreciate any opinions.

Thanks!

Appears to be struck through grease.
Unusual to find grease on both sides.
Nice find and a keeper.

Nice! Pending weight is within specs, struck through grease seems most likely. The rims seem a bit lacking on both sides. Thanks, Doug.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.
