From the collection of a retired senior air force officer, ex Roma IX, 7 April 2016, 778.

This coin is a so-called flip-over double strike, meaning that the flan was not removed between two strikes but flipped over, which resulted in traces of the reverse type and legend being visible on the obverse and vice versa.
