Hello everyone; recently bought this at my LCS for pretty cheap. I just want to verify that an error this dramatic can actually happen? Dont want this to be any sort of fake. I wish the date had got minted into it, but it is made of copper, so it must be 1982 or before. thanks for the input! Just looking for a second opinion.

It's not a fake. It's real. These errors do actually happen, when the equipment starts to malfunction.

awesome to hear. any ballpark value? I know the pictures arent the best in terms of showing grade, but id put the minted part at AU; all the details are there. the rest of the planchet has some scratches and such. and I'm assuming not being able to view the date will make it less valuable..

Check eBay sold values for an idea on current values.
