Denmark: 25 oere 1968, km855.1, double strike

Hi,

so here is a variant from 1968. How can a double strike be just on a few places on a coin? I'll have to ask the Danish Royal Mint, I suppose ;)

Not abnormal. Not sure about the mechanics, but I have seen this effect often. My best guess is that the die was not mounted in an absolutely level position, so that the area below received slightly more pressure.
