any ideas about what happened here? I found this in my father's collection and I don't know anything its history. It looks like a blob of metal got stuck on top of the coin. It has the same shiny color as the rest of the coin.

Not an error.
It was attached after the coin was minted. By the looks
of the rim it might have even been encased in a bezel
possibly for a piece of jewellery.

Thanks for the prompt reply. This makes sense as a few of the other coins had been made into jewelry at some time in the past. It's still a nice shiny coin for its age.
