the devices are reduced. So you have Machine Doubling
. Machine Doubling
happens after the strike. A slight bounce/swing that is like a kick in the shins. Note on your coin: See on the affected area:
1. The area is flat, shelf like.
2. The contour of the coin is removed on that side of the devices.
3. The overall size of the devices are reduced in size.

is very common. Even a doubled die can be affected with Machine Doubling

that happened after the strike. Just a common coin.
