NAC cataloging is usually above question, but I’m going to need some die links to convince me that this is actually a hybrid and not an ancient imitation.  I agree with what ever ancient decided to cut it open to check it’s purity.  It looks a wee bit fishy as an authentic product of the Roman mint.  (Although I acknowledge controls on the style of dies isn’t particularly strong at the mint)  It’s an interesting specimen either way!
