This is one of the absolute craziest double-dies I have ever seen on any foreign coin. It is a possible discovery piece. It's a strong class IV DDR (the whole eagle and both mintmarks are shifted). There are about 5 retained cuds near the mintmark region, and to top it off, the dies are rotated about 10 degrees. The coin grades about a VF to me. I'm also not sure on what this would be valued at?

I have not learned yet on how to rotate images, and when I tried to crop the reverse, it managed to chop off the very top of the image. I also tried to include the obverse and post it, but had problems in cropping it. At least I got the most important picture up, since there is not much going on the obverse.

To rotate the pictures:
BEFORE you click CROP PHOTO there are rotation arrows in the upper left corner of your chosen image.

Since your a newbie just a heads up, always best to remove coins from holders whenever possible especially a 2x2 before taking photos.
