KUSHAN, authentic or dentist drill special?

I just bought this odd version of a Kushan bronze. An odd crude ," incised" style. I bought it on ebay (emoticon needed) from a dealer in India whose coins I have liked so far. Anyone seen anything like this? The weight is low --8.48g---but the patina and fabric are familiar to other Kushan types.

Not even

Not even dentist drill--dremel tool work! Nothing like authentic Kushan!

Red face a button?

Well, unless someone posts "wait, I know that coin!" in the next day or two, I guess I have an $7.60 button.
I was suspicious during the auction, but I felt it was worth a look....and the photo did not indicate it's unique groove-i-ness Could be used as a die or a seal.
Wow....what a weird bit of handicraft.
I do, in my defence, have several real and pleasing Kushan bronzes.
And so, the dealer is a barbarous rarity and not the coin?

Do not be embarrassed! I routinely bid on things that I cannot identify just because I do not know what they are. Your investment was less than most movie tickets and bound to be more amusing.
