Presumably, this is a pattern because it is missing last 2 digits of the date. IMHO, if this was struck with a pattern or an unfinished die, it would not be missing the second mint master initial. In fact that 'C' from the initial is barely visible, which suggests a weak strike or some die damage in that area.

 

Unfortunately, it looks like someone is going to waist 100 Euros on this coin.

As the reverse does not show a weakness opposite the missing areas of the

obverse I would suggest that either the planchet was defective or the obverse

die had sunk in the affected area.

 

It is possible, however, that the die was unfinished as suggested.
