Sadly no full date but very distorted, NGC did not weigh it but probably struck on penny flans. GTG after you look at the obverse!

    Very dramatic double struck piece!

    I’ll see your ha’penny and raise you a sixpence…

    This is out of my comfort zone to offer opinions... but there may be larger issues in terms of what happened here.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    Yes, well, don't be shy. I know this is not my usual cup of tea and I suppose I am supporting the market for these types of coins (but will confess this was not a bit ticket!). As you are no doubt aware, there is a purveyor of such at the highest levels and I do not care for his methodology ( and I will leave it at that as probably my own opinion is MUCH stronger).

    That's pretty sick. Shame that second strike isn't just a tad further south so we can see the date.

    Good guess as it is MS65RB.
    I agree about the date being only partially there - why, oh why could they not have "played" it a bit better. IMHO this was a mintsport piece...
