Found this hiding in the back of an old binder. Don't remember where or when I got it. A cool re-find.

With the light strike on the reverse around the cavity, and that huge "cauliflower" ear on the King, I think it's legit.

I'm not a large cent collector, yet, but I do like errors.

What do you think? Opinions please, and, Thank You.

Jimmy, the reverse is a cavity/crater, the ear is quit proud. I got fooled by the optical illusion too.

Because the Reverse is struck so weakly, I think that a loose piece of steel was on top of the planchet and it was struck through, making the Rev die not fully striking and the Obv punched out

That's the jist I had in mind as well. The cracks in the bottom of the crater are hard to fake if tooled. Thanks okie.

If there is a bulge there the obverse is not weak enough in general and the king's ear should be very well struck.

Why is the obverse so weak around this anomaly?

. Because of the crud that got hammered into it kept the die high on the strike, and punched out the other side after a good strike to the obverse?

Think about it.
If that were true George's ear would be so detailed we'd see that mthe hairs needed trimming.

Take any coin, brutally hammer a cavity into it... then, look at the other side...

DBM, that's hilarious. I'm still not convinced. There is so much wear on the high spot on the obverse from the reverse cavity, and that with the weak strike on the reverse says it happened a long time ago. One way or another, I don't mind, but it's cool we can't agree yet.

Exactly what are you disagreeing on? Think of the dies, and how coins are struck...

This is 100% a damaged coin.
