Hello, I couldn't find another one like this one to compare it to and I'd like to know if it's rare or the usual.

Not rare but not that common either. It's a "fun find"

I don't know if it's the case here, but this is a possibility.

Sometimes the dies are not annealed (hardened) correctly and the center is "softer".
When used in coin production after a while the center of the die that is "soft" will start to collapse which allows the other die to push its central design element through to the other side.

My best guess.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

A strong example of a relatively common phenomenon.

This is due to the over use of the dies. Constant pounding alters the lower(anvil) die in this way. Very common on 40's and 50's LWCs and early 60's LMCs.

Common, not worth saving unless it's mint state IMO.
