Considering how far out from the 'edge beads' the flan is on this coin, it is almost certainly overstruck on an existing coin flan. Judging by the many little triangular nicks along the edge, it seems most likely that this coin, being somewhat hurriedly struck at an irregular mint, simply recycled an old serratus flan. Interesting!
