I'll be the first brave soul to cry warning here.

It looks suspicious to me:
Why are there brushed horizontal lines across the surface of the reverse?
The detail looks almost too precise to be from the period.
The leaf at underside 7:30pm is just veins, no leaf.
Odd looking clash marks outside the lips. Double die?
The dies cracks appear to go all the way into the rim and they also are running through the letter T almost evenly which looks odd.

I could be totally wrong. I'm a Newfoundland collector, not a Canada one. If it is real, its a beauty and I'd grade it MS.

Can you overlay photos to see what in the Reverse is clashed on the Obv.

thank you for doing that.
could someone enlighten me what this would / could achieve or prove?
I will soon buy or improve my photo SW and, should this feature be included? presently I use an old version 14 ACDsee photo SW.
So, for example, what does this specific overlay tell us?

It tells you what specific part of the reverse design has clashed the Obverse die. In this case it's the leaves, etc that are messing with Vicky's forehead, nose, lips and neck ... all the anomalies that seem to show on the OP's photo. But there does seem to be something else going on with the tip of the nose and the lip/chin.
