It is an ordinary coin with an ordinary die break.

Respectfully, some of the biggest and most experienced names in ancient numismatics have already weighed in and the consensus is the die used to strike your coin was damaged.

I'm curious what outcome you are hoping for now? No recognized expert is going to tell you what you clearly want to hear.

For die break explanation to make sense there would have to be similar coin with larger cornucopia which made engraver to push letters further down. Yet as far as i know there is no coin in existence with larger cornucopia and letters positioned like this. No matter to which coin you compare this coin, simply these changes could not occur with die break.

Maybe in future we find similar type and we can confirm die break, but so far no know coin matches position of letters around new design and respectfully could not become this coin.

Im glad people gave opinion that's why forum threads are for. I am not expecting some special outcome or severe drama, its simply a debate over interesting coin. Stay safe
