Your first impression might be that this is just a blurry photo, but the obverse of this specimen is very mushy and deeply dished as well. Note the lack of any rim. The reverse is absolutely unremarkable, a completely normal strike on that side.

New at these errors...
My uneducated GUESS is a Brockage?


EDIT: ERRORS are starting to become my favorite coins... even though I cant identify which kind of error is one.

Looks like a struck through die cap to me. What's ever it is it sure is interesting.

Seems as if there's a solid consensus on the nature of this error. If I understand the matter correctly, in most instances the press would continue to operate and many such could be struck before the material capping the die wears through or falls away. So as far as errors go, then, these shouldn't be too rare, the valuation being somewhat subject to whether it's an early or late stage example. For this particular specimen, I've no frame of reference to determine where on that scale it might be.

Hello Lucky Cuss

Still working on identifying ERROS (learning phase for me).
ERROR-REF.COM http://www.error-ref.com/?s=die+cap
