1866 Third Farthing mis-strike?

Recommended Posts

This 1866 Third Farthing seems to have a mis-strike(?) with an oval shape by the A in farthing. Is this of any interest?

Just looks like a die flaw which is a natural feature of wear and tear where a small piece of metal has flaked off the surface.

You do get clashed dies with a mirror image of the other side, but this is too mucky/rough to see it should it be there and the flaw too prominent to be this.
