There is no 2/1 overdate and this appears to be a circulation hit that moved some metal.

Dave,
Could the coin be a VAM 2b metal in 2?

There are several obverse dies that have a rough surface finish inside the date digits. It appears the surface inside these were recessed from the surface of the fields and as a result they didn't clean up during the die preparation process.
To the best of my knowledge none of these carry a premium.
