Coop-I have seen double dies on a few letters excluding others.
mikediamond-Your explanation is interesting. I have never heard of such
a thing being done, but how could the ripples be so secluded and not affect the whole surface?
I'm not saying that anyone is wrong. I'm just as curious as you all are.
Will post more photos later.

This might be the best I can do using a phone camera through a 55m camera lens.
I wish you could see what I do.
If you need more angles, I'll try...
Photos to follow.

Just so you know, Daniel Malone from Coin Help said that the errors are due to die deterioration, and it is neither rare nor valuable.

Thanks Guys

You were told it was a damaged coin and you sold it as an error coin on eBay anyway?

You shouldn't of sold that coin. You ended up ripping off that buyer. You need to refund that buyer, since you sold him/her a damaged coin worth 1 cent.

Whatever you do, don't make that mistake ever again.

I am reimbursing the man his money.
I did not read the comments on here after posting that I sold it, nor did I really think that they were intentional errors, but I have since learned a valuable lesson, and being the honest person that I am will do the right thing.

Thanks guys

UPDATE: The man still wants to buy it for it's uniqueness and sees more error than otherwise in the coin. Says that some of you guys on here are masquerading as experts.

So here comes the newb with a new question. Was that greenish tone on this coin evidence of PVC residue? Maybe in old plastic flip at one time? Just curious. Or was that pointed out already? Didn't see anyone ask or state but may have missed. I got some like that out of an old penny collection holder. Found some nice ones though not effected. Unfortunately some MS examples were ruined because if it. But curious of it on this coin even though damaged. But interesting issues for sure.
