So I work at a credit union and we have a coin machine and sometimes coins wont get sorted ether they stuck together or damaged, etc and it was laying on the pad inside it. So when I looked and saw it just sitting there I had to snag it. And after watching some blueridge and other youtube videos I thought this has got to be an error coin and seeing the date flipped almost confirmed it wasn't a PMD coin. So I figured id share on here. I love learning about this stuff and you guys seem to be so knowledgeable. So that is the reason I posted it here

Nice coin! As stated, it's double struck. The second strike is off center and "uniface" because only the obverse die hit the coin. The reverse was sitting on a blank planchet that was in the coining chamber. That's why you don't see the reverse of a second strike and the letters on the reverse are distorted in what is called a counter-brockage. The date would have been lost, but the second strike was positioned at the date.

I wonder how it made it into the coin counting machine.

So here is a what if: What if this coin was a doubled ear. Would that increase the value of the coin? What do you think?

Coop, I think you and I are in agreement that in general a variety on an error coin adds little value, or even de-values the coin. But in this case, a DDO-001, FS-101 doubled ear on a top grade flip over incredibly awesome doublestrike would at least double the value of the coin.

That said, I love the coin, congrats on the find, and welcome. A most excellent error coin.

The point I was making is that an error on a variety coin would be a deal breaker. An error collector wouldn't pay extra for a variety. Why? Two different camps of collectors. When we would see both on a coin, often new collectors think it would increase the value. But it doesn't. So chances are the error collectors would be more interested in then. They except it as an error. But a variety collector would likely refuse it as a variety because of the distraction. I know this could is only an error, but the subject comes up now and then. So store that in your memory banks for another time.
