I am just getting interested in coins and this is my first exciting find. . . . . I know less than nothing about coins or collecting so I ask you for all opinions / observations / facts and/or information.... And without further ado, I present to you my very first error coin:
It looks like you have a dryer coin. It didn't leave the mint like this. It spent some time inside the drum of a dryer (or something that tumbled it around.) It's not an error, just damaged. Only worth 50¢.
Sorry. Keep looking! You'll find something!
