Can this be considered a spitting abe? Looks like a die glitch or something and with the colors, is this something unique or just a cool looking penny?
Also,the detail is amazing, did they do proofs, or unmarked S sets during this time, and if so could this be one? Ot also looks like there's some doubling on Liberty, and the t Is a die crack maybe or another doubling? Looks to me like there's an off centering as well. thoughts please?
Although hard to tell from your pics,it sounds like toning on your coin from your description which is not uncommon on coins under certain environmental condition.It's your choice,If you like it,keep it but I agree with being a spender.
