Ratzie33 - Try to look at coins you find objectively and without attempting to assign causes for their appearance. When you have a coin that looks different or unusual, post a good sharp photo, describe what you see, and let members offer their comments. They are more experienced than you, and will help guide you toward understanding the differences between errors and common damage.

I think it may be a cast counterfeit, those are the casting sprue and the vent.

If it is, it has to be one of the worst attempts that I have ever seen. :p
