Die clashes. This specific overton variety is notorious for it, as well as a very weak strike.

Actually not a clash or PMD. It is a die line that is a signature for the O-107. I am not exactly sure if this is a die defect or a developing die crack, I would need an example to study in hand. I see photos of the defect possibly growing, so it may be a die break in a strange spot. Also, this die pair struck the pattern platinum strikes. A very cool marriage with a story.
