Oh yeah–I also noticed the broken E (and S?)….that’s especially telling if verified dies don’t have that.
“The coin does not seem perfectly round, or it might be the die used.”
I see that now…it seems like the arc/curve changes around 12:30 on the rev?
The rims on real business strikes sure look crisper–I guess whatever collar they used let the coin metal flow differently, sorta like a broadstrike?
Another thought–the portrait details look sorta mushy?
