Hi everyone,
I am new to the group. I will contribute what I can, but just have about 5 years of experience. I like to go roll hunting with pennies and nickles.
I came across this yesterday. Never seen something like this before (See attached photos). I just need a reality check. This is a Double die with a tear? The obverse where the date looks like the first press tore a copper layer off (can see the rim in the tear), then the second stamp pressed it back down? The edge on the left suggests this is a double die? Would this be worth certifying? If so, what company would do that?
Thanks much for the help, greatly appreciated.
Pennyer

to CCF. On the 2 is a lamination error. Not worth grading. Need close ups to tell if it is a DDO.

Looks as if it were struck with a piece of copper foil stuck between the planchet and the die.

with John1.

FYI: The correct terminology is that the coins are minted, not stamped, and in the minting process, they are struck only once between two dies (one die for each side) called a strike.

To learn more to learn about the minting process, watch this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzqrSrU3jXg

I agree, that is looks more like a struck through debris as it affects the rim area. The weight should be a slight amount higher if the metal was added to the coin. Looks like the metal peeled and ended up there after the strike. Not a coin to have graded as already mentioned. But some would save it for a modest premium.
