    Die clash. Not that unusual, but yours is pretty dramatic.

    Nice clash, collectors do like these and they are quite collectible.

    It seems like it might be a die clash mixed with adjustment marks.

    The clashed rays almost seem re-engraved, don’t they? Like someone was trying to accentuate them.

    I do not have the coin in hand yet, it is on their way, seems that will be by the end of the week.

    Here is a zoom in:

    Also have this dot on cap:

    Maybe these are normal:

    3 dots after date:

    A double L:

    Maybe a double M too:

    I got the coin in hand now, did not mentioned previously, the coin had an old cleaning, it is retoning. Do not know if will worth sending it to grade, maybe just for the unpublished variety with reverse die clash causing the transfer of LIBERTAD at top of cactus. Or just leave it as-is or to the BST.

    Will post a photo of the coin later.
