Hi! I am newer to coin collecting and wondering thoughts regarding this coin. Thinking it's double die in date (51) and Liberty. Assuming the misspelled Liberty is strike error? Does it also have a partial collar? All input appreciated!

I don't believe this is an error, and here's why.

Date: it looks pretty normal for a circulated coin. Perhaps you could point out where you're seeing doubling.
If there is doubling, it can take a bit to learn the difference between a doubled die (usually rare and worth something) and Machine Doubling (very common and rarely worth a premium). Doubled dies actually widen the coin's details and produce telltale notched corners and serifs, while Machine Doubling just flattens part of the device.

LIBERTY: It looks like the E and R are damaged. You can see where the upper loop of the R used to be, but a hit shove the metal to where it is.

Rim: It's just worn down into the field. A partial collar strike is what happens when the collar doesn't cover the full thickness of the coin, so part of the edge can expand beyond the normal diameter. Here's a good example: http://goccf.com/t/394723
Feel free to measure your coin's diameter, but I suspect it's no larger than it should be.

Sorry it's not an error, but this is how we learn.

What is behind your coin. A holder? Or Something else.
What is the weight of your coin? I see a lot of thin rims around the outside edge of your coin. Trying to figure out why it appears so thin? Without the rim to protect the devices, events that removed some of the devices we able to alter them. So if you could post a weight to this thread, it might explain what happened to your coin. Is it under weight, damaged on the rims or a thinned planchet. (My brain likes to figure stuff out.
