The date is a repunched date. Doubling on the A is strike doubling.

. The Three Cent nickels had so much trouble with dies wearing out because of the hard planchets. They, and the Shield nickels, have all kinds of striking and die problems.

In some date cases it's much harder to find examples without problems, rather than with them.

It might be Longacre doubling on the lettering. Kind of a neat topic to read up on.

Three Cent nickels did not present nearly the problems that Shield nickels did, because the planchets are much thinner.

But thinner planchets meant less metal to bring up details so they often had to use higher pressures and that also caused die failure. Plus the Three Cents came first when the mint had even less experience with the planchets. Die problems withthe Three Cents were pretty much just as great with themas with the Shield nickels.Good stikes are unusaual and dies cracks, clashes, chips, breaks, and die engraving problems run rampant through the series, just as in the Shield nickels. Finding a piece that doesn't have some kind of production "problem" is difficult.
