*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I am new here and a beginner at searching for coins.
I came across this one, and not sure if it's a mint error or post mint error.
To me it looks to have a double ear lobe.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

@jm50317, first welcome to CCF. Second, when I blow up and enhance your pic, it sure looks like the earlobe has taken a hit which smushed the metal from the lobe upward.

Draw a horizontal line from under nose west, it should go under the earlobe on a normal coin.

Your pictures look nice. For the experts to have a better assessments of your coin, a picture of the whole coin & a magnified shot of the ear might help. I concur with Spence's post, looking at your current pictures, the bottom ear lobe is flat possibility of being pushed creating the middle lobe. If you can magnify the third elongated upper part, I just want to see if there is notching on that. Enjoy the hobby.

I added it this time, but you should include the date, mintmark, and the denomination in your titles.

Sure does look like a doubled ear. It is odd that if from a hit, only there. Makes one wonder how or why.

It's Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). The ear took a well placed hit, causing the metal to get pushed over and flattened.
