    The real rarity is that this is actually something worthwhile. ;)

    I am seeing grease filled dies, not a weak strike, but that's splitting hairs. Plenty going on there.

    At normal weight it cannot be rolled thick.

    The wire rims show that this is a strong strike, not a weak one.

    It is struck through grease.

    You actually found something! Grease filled dies for sure, clash as well, no on the rolled thick planchet in my opinion.

    Not rolled thick. Weight right on standard.
