Can you post a picture of the obverse in the correct orientation.

Is this coin round or oblong ? can't tell from your picture.

It is slightly oblong. Obverse = otherside?

Obverse= other side?

Yes, always post both sides of the coin when posting.
This can be important

Probably a vise job. Better pictures will help.

It was purchased in a storage auction and was in a tin with various foreign coins. My first impression was that it was maybe pressed in a stack of coins . But the tripling on it couldnt be achieved that way to my knowledge. I will post other pictures when I get home.

If it was a vise job. Wouldn't words be reversed?
Curious just LIBERTY is reversed.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could send more pictures.
Both sides.

Until we get better pictures I am unsure but this one does have a chance in my opinion of being a mint error.

Mbeauj:- to the CCF!
I agree with you - it appears to be a contrived post Mint 'error', but I am not 100% sure.
To receive the triple strike as seen here, an incuse punch needs to be made from another LMC. This sort of incuse punch can be made in a shed job by the explosive impact method, then applied to the coin in a hydraulic press.

A concrete crush hydraulic test rig should be able to apply enough pressure.
I am reasonably sure that a vise would not be able to exert enough pressure.

To be more certain of what we may have correctly theorized, it would be useful to post pictures of the edge at various places, and also a picture of the obverse.

It looks like the coin has had at least three contacts at some point. How about the first contact made, that created a "die" as such, on another coin, that would be reversed and in relief, would be used again, to create the "doubling" we see, when used again.
