Ah, if only it were so...
- I wish this WERE a genuine "one-sided multi-strike:
Coins with multiple strikes detectable on only one face do exist (see
the "multiple strikes" album), but they're very rare and they don't
look like this.
This coin was apparently struck with a fake die. The haphazard
positioning of the extra design elements is one clue. The extreme
weakness of the accessory strikes is another. The flattening of the
obverse design in several areas is yet another clue. The reverse is
rough-looking, which is an obvious red flag.
Genuine "one-sided multi-strikes" occur when the hammer die rotates
or experiences a misalignment between one strike and the next. It's
one of my favorite error types. Oddly, they seem to be more common
in proofs than in business strikes, possibly because all proofs are
struck at least twice.
