Hello CCF,

I'm not sure what the correct attribute is but looks like a REVERSE brockage/capped die strike error to me.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Thank you!

It was struck through a mid-late stage die cap, nice find! Its relatively uncommon to see the reverse side capped from my experience.

Edit: I actually think this might be an early stage cap considering the upside down impression of Lincoln, but i’d like a second opinion on that

Adam is correct, it is a struck through a capped die and it is a nice one, further more I agree with Adam that it is not very often you see this on the reverse. it is time to put it in a 2x2
BTW where did you get it?

VERY nice! I'd venture to say it is a Mid-stage die cap, both images remain visible. It started with the reversed bust image, then goes to the memorial showing through with additional hits. That is indeed unusual, it is a wonder the collar assembly didn't "pop the cap" in it's motion upwards...rim is still actualized and not broadstruck! Really cool find, very collectable and worth a "pretty penny" !

This is an in-collar uniface strike.

Chase007: I purchased a small box (which included 10-15 other interesting/potential error coins) at a local estate sale (Chicago suburb) for $20. This was about a year ago when I just started collecting.

Does anyone know what the approximate value is?

Thanks to everyone for the feedback.

No. I do t think grading it would help you at all. I’d say it’s around 20 bucks give or take a ten or a twenty

Especially with those black spots on the obverse.

I also concluded that the underlying planchet was full-thickness because the raised ghost image of the Memorial and the incuse ghost bust of Lincoln are of equal strength. Had the ghost of the Memorial dominated, then the underlying coin would have been a thin planchet (rolled-thin or split). Full uniface strikes involving a thin planchet are much more common, presumably because they're more likely to evade the sweeping action of the ejector. The strength of the ghost images will vary, even with in-collar uniface strikes involving two full-thickness planchets. By the way, my site is error-ref.com not error-var.com.
