Well, here's another one. And I would say that it was obvious, except I didn't notice it for days.
This is the famous 'Egyptian Arch' bridge design, which always looks weird. This one is weirder. It's fuzzy and soft looking, as though the die was made of plasticine.
The heads side has almost no detail, and the words, 'ONE POUND', are far too fat.
The tails side suffers similar faults and is also unevenly struck so that the bottom right is much fainter than the top left.
The edge is badly and unevenly marked, and looks as though it has been filed.
