I thought die clash when I first saw those letters. Doesn't look like a typical brockage, but I could be wrong.

But with the "Bon" not backwards I'm going with brockage

I don't think it's BON. It looks like POU (POUR) backwards.

I thought with brockage you see a mirror image? So if it is POUR (I agree this is the best option), then it is a mirror image of that part of the legend, hence brockage?

We call them "partial incuse errors". Did't found the right english word for it...maybe: die clash

I make an article over this type of error (in flemish).

But in short.

In this case you have two dies.
By error these two dies clash against eachother without an blanco planchet in between them.
Marks of the first die are visable on the other die.
So when an other coin is minted you see these mark on the coin in mirror image.

mvg,
