Not a vice job, but a vise job.

Three or more cents were squeezed together in a vise.

&Thanks for the welcome! Are you certain about the vice since it's on the same angle on both sides?

Notice how the image of the memorial is incused where they should be raised and the raised portions are incused. This would not have happened at the mint during the striking process. So the only way that happens if coins are put in something like a vise and pressed together with enough force to transfer the image.

Always remember to use the "CCF SEARCH" - it's a wealth of knowledge.
Here's a typical topic search on vise jobs and the coin in question............

Notice on the obverse, the lettering is backwards? Dead giveaway as to a vise job. Keep searching!

The only way this can happen at the mint is on a brockage, in which case the correct design shouldn't be there at all.
