Im not convinced this is post mint damage with the coin in hand. The obverse and reverse are matching, the flows of metal and especially were the rays meet.Note the close ups how the groves are nicely rounded the way they should look like being struck over. Just found this roll searching.

The rim would be still be round if in the collar strike, thus PMD

I agree, PMD.

Next to impossible that it was struck-through something on both sides of the coin, in exactly the same position.

The pins/spears appear to be rusting .. are they mild steel? It looks to me that the pins were pressed into the coin after striking ... there are no marks on them from being on the planchet when struck. A "vise" job? Tough to tell when not in hand.

I'm basing these comments on that the anomalies appear to be raised, rather than incuse into the design. If they are cut into the coin, then some type of workshop tool was used to damage it into looking like it does.

Definitely PMD with snips or pliers.
