A bit challenging to photograph with a cheap phone camera. Nice details, but with light corrosion. Profiling starts above brow down to chin. Also, has a minor die rotation.

I think it's just Machine Doubling or MD. It also seems to be visible on the hair braid and feathers of the headdress.

Has the coin been treated? The pebbled surfaces make it look like it may have been acid etched to bring out the details of the coin, but I'm not sure.

That's what I figured.

The surface has definitely been altered. It's porous. I thought it might be corrosion, but you raise an interesting point. Didn't pay much for it.

Thanks, Coinfrog. The coin is not very reflective, so that helped a lot.

Definitely MD, but a good example to show the extent of it. Shame about the surfaces, does look like it sat in some form of acid. Strike looks solid, earlier die state as well, not seeing much in the way of die polishing.
