I have one that is confusing me. It appears to be a Hungarian Denar from King Wladislaus I in either copper or very low grade billon. On the one side is the Lithuanian Rider,but the opposite side just has this reversed image from the other side. I was wondering if this was a variation with just one side struck. Thank you for any help.

This coin was minted at perhaps the lowest point in Hungarian history in terms of quality control. Huszar wrote: “Owing to inner strife and disordered general conditions, the coins [of this period] were usually minted with extremely low precious metal content; moreover, poor mintages were often struck with negligently engraved dies. As a result of the hurried, superficial minting, it was sometimes doubtful whether a faulty coin had been issued officially, or was a forgery”
