I bought this coin without much knowledge about it. I liked the look. I have a specific question about the minting process. We're these coins rolled through a press to make the impression? The reason I ask is because as you can see in the photos, there is a little bit of a curve on one end like it was rolled. I want to know if this coin is "as minted" or PMD. Any info would be great!

Roller presses were a common thing at the time and within that region. It certainly would be very reasonable to assume the slight bend is from the minting, though I personally am uncertain how to, with certainty, attribute a minting process bend vs a PMD bend.

I really don't like buying damaged coins, but my gut told me this was a result of the roller press. It's mine now, so I will call it undamaged.

I can see why that coin appealed to you! (Lovely natural patina).

I don't think I have any coins from that era that are perfectly flat. It's normal.
