I would like to know if this is an error coin. If so which type of error is it and how much is it worth? Please and thank you

I opened the post, saw the green stain at the top, and was prepared to give you the usual answer. Then I scrolled down...
That's a nice looking double strike! I'm no expert when it comes to value but that should fetch somewhere in the two-digit range. It's a shame about the damage.

One of the mods will hopefully move this to the proper forum to get more attention.

The damage is mostly on the surface. Most of it came off with a dry paper towel.

Yes - that is a nice error indeed. There are known methods to manage that green corrosion.

Yes, that is a double-struck LMC. The condition is not so good, so I wouldn't expect too much value, maybe $5-10.

After dealing with the corrosion the coin looks a lot better.

to CCF. You should not clean coins is a general rule.

Great find ITzSmores!

Is this what is called a SADDLE STRIKE HEAD TO HEAD?

Very nice Double Strike! Although, that harsh cleaning just took away a ton of value. Should of just left it alone. That was a big mistake.

Definitely an error. Congrats! Cool looking coin. I' wouldn't sell that one, since it's not that much. Cool error none the less. Wonder what you used to clean it

Great find...put it on a window sill to get some tone back (few weeks). Flip it once in a while.

Ouch on that harsh cleaning - that removed at least 50% of the numismatic value from it's original corroded state.

We are here to support education - I wish you had asked questions on how to safely deal with the corrosion.

Still a cool error - but alas no longer of interest to most informed collectors.

How about making it your "pocket piece"? Maybe after awhile it will start looking better?

Actually, that's good advice.
