Sure, send it to me - email@example.com - I'll be happy to look at it; but you are pumping in a dry well; SA did NOT stamp "1878". You apparently have encountered a specimen where ALL of the metallurgical gods (die wear, a clogged die, a surface flaw, borderline hardness, maximum thickness of block, a too hard [or double] strike) have conspired to produce what appears to be a believable anomaly.
