I hope it is ok to link to an imgur album. There is just so many things that stood out on this beautiful coin and the post limits 5 pictures. Coin is very PL in hand, did my best with my phone camera. Thanks everyone and I hope this coin didn't get the better of you.

The "doubling" of the stars and letters is actually pullback, IMO

So pullback is the term for the streaks that make it look like it moved or slid across the coin? The doubling I mentioned can be seen clearer in the closeups of the stars, there is 2 distinct edges on some of the stars.

I was referring to the discolored area around the star, shows best in the last pic.
Not sure if the arrows are showing doubling. If so, they would be to minor to list IMO.
