This isn't my coin. I'm not even thinking about buying it. But I am curious about it. Owner says they found it buried in the ground. Error? PMD?

I don't know what to make of it. 1908 is doubled and shifted left, as is the lower bust and the last A in America. It appears to be thicker in that area like a piece of another coin is fused to it, and it overlaps at both edges. But then how is only that area double-struck? If it's a vice job I can't figure how it was done.

False error, I'm thinking.

Perhaps Mike Diamond can weigh in. I have no idea how that could've been made.

I don't think it is a vise job, because the lettering isn't mirrored. Probably a false error and an experiment. Not in bad shape if it was found underground!

I guess I'm not surprised, but it's got the opening bid of $100 on Ebay. I wonder if the winner is going to post it on here after they get it.

I found it - and you are right, the numbers are not reversed just rotated but it is flat and blank on the reverse.- I just can't see how this happened..

Whether in the mint or in a garage, I can't figure it out either. One scenario (I have no idea if this is plausible) - a clipped planchet with the clip still attached gets struck, the upper part separates and gets ejected but the lower part is stuck to the die, another planchet gets struck and the lower clip gets fused to the coin. But struck again offset a little? And how does the reverse in that area end up blank? I struggle to figure out how the upper part gets struck only once, as if something is blocking one of the strikes. That's the best I could come up with. Somebody whacking it in a garage, I can't explain at all.
