Nice looking coin. Thanks, since I don't have much experience with large clad.

My first thought was a subtle off-center strike but it doesn't look round (a little out of round?) so a broad struck makes sense.
Can you share an image of the rim (where the reeds are missing) and give us the diameter?

Looks like a partial collar. Any signs of reeding along the edge near "TED STA" on the reverse?

"No reeds" is good news. Congrats again on a nice find.

No reeding and enlarged size, none of the design off the planchet not an off-center, expansion not equal on all sides, conclusion an uncentered broadstrike.

Nice error! Do you know the diameter?
