This is not my coin, so the pictures are all I have.

What kind of error is this (if it is one), and what is it worth?

Thanks in advance,
Devin

Thank you... I won't tell you what I paid on eBay (because I don't remember), however I showed it to Jon Sullivan (at the ANA NMS) before I submitted it and he said ~ $150.

It's amazing a coin that thin can have a lamination that large.

I have another one that is even larger... I'll have to dig up the photo and post it. That one split before the strike and has only a tiny bit of the full height forming a bit of the rim. What little detail there is is barely visible - it took a huge stack shot to show it.
