Hi I'm new here. Got this coin recently and I am wondering if there's an error. The coin on the left is without the error and the coin on the right is ...well I'm not sure if it's an error. Need some advice on this
I have gone to several coin collector shops in my country, however they weren't sure either.

It looks like a spooned coin or a clothes dryer coin to me.Not an error.

The edge of the coin was continuously hit with a spoon, turning the rim over. This was the initial process used on a coin when making it into a "Coin Ring".

Definitely not an error, but probably not actually a "spooned" coin either. The polished rim combined with the damage and severe wear to the design inside the coin tells me this is more likely to be a " dryer coin" - it got stuck in the well of an industrial clothes dryer or similar piece of machinery and spent years just rolling around and around.

The other option is, of course, that it's just a counterfeit. But the highly polished rim tells me the dryer coin is more likely; a counterfeiter isn't going to waste time doing that to their counterfeits, for no real benefit to them.
