That is a nice one. @ktc, I know with it being slabbed that you can't get an exact measurement of the diameter, but can you estimate it please? I'm interested to know how much of a bump in diameter there is from being broadstruck. Thx!

Nice coin. Thanks to share.

I am on the side of Spencer, to know the deviation. I just finish the table of off-center and others. will be very interesting to know the diameter and the distance from border to the design start. On those coins if you has 2.25mm deviation is 15%.

I like the planchet alloy.

Seems like a low grade for a coin that is just affected by the planchet coloring? All the rest of the coin is free from coin scratch issues, and a great strike providing it was struck out of the collar. Note the beard? How strong that area is struck.
