The absence of striations would seem to eliminate a split planchet. Unless further evidence is brought forward, one should always revert to the most prosaic explanation, which is a rolled-thin error. Such errors are quite common. You can't even get $5 for them on eBay (I know, I've tried).

I really like this one, but have no idea of the possible value. If it were in a coin shop for $5-$10 I'd have to pick it up!

Long day at work so just getting to things. I tend to agree with Mike that it's not a high dollar error, but from my end I am more interested in getting it correctly labeled than value. What it is, is more important to me than value. I am, at a basic level a scientist (cave/bat biologist) and like to be able to put coins in a specific place. This one continues to confound me even with the comments here. Struck on a thin planchet just doesn't seem enough. That is what will go on the slip, but just seems like something more here.

sosicoin sent me photos from the Herbert book. Not convinced it's that, but not convinced it's not.

So huge thanks to all who have commented! Just still not sure how to label the coin.

I have a great fondness for bats. They are marvels of evolution and perform vital ecosystem services. So kudos to you for working to understand and protect our flapping friends.

Thanks Mike, With White Nose Syndrome wiping out some bat species and other stresses on them my work in the US has been pretty important. My tropical work also helps to conserve them in other places. They really are throwbacks, mostly unchanged for 50 million years, and have been a part of the landscape for a very, very long time. Our loss of them now is not without environmental consequences, and working to figure out where the remaining populations are is fairly important.

It's what I do in the summer, mostly, with error and variety coins in the winter while the bats are asleep.
