What I can see..
1. Devices were unaffected by event
2. New devices more raised than normal ones
3. New devices have relicts of another coin that looks scratched and shattered.
Keeping in mind that I probably don't know enough about this type of thing to make an educated guess...
Could be a lamination resulting from another coin which was struck on a badly flawed planchet containing too little zinc which got mauled up and was redeposited on this coin?...
The dye itself was normal and remained unaffected or reasonably unaffected with only a few left over Trail die looking relics left on it.
