I search penny rolls for wheats and errors. This coin looked like it was just another damaged penny but the overlayed image and words jumped out. Can anyone help explain what may have caused this. I think it was struck a second time off center by the reverse die. Also the reverse side has some missing surface gleem. Ok that's all I know. Any help would be appreciated.

@oh, first welcome to CCF. Second, are you sure that you aren't seeing dried glue? It looks to me like a second coin was stuck to this one and then when they were separated, the remnant glue kept the impression of that other coin.

To CCF! That's just glue from a coin being glued together. PSD.

Thanks for the welcome. This forum has already been very informative and I appreciate the you taking the time to answer my question.

You both were absolutely correct. The raised edges and the gloss should have been the giveaway but I only saw what I wanted it to be.
Again thanks for the info.
