I purchased this coin online. a nice coin, but I think it is mislabeled.It reads "Doublestruck, 2nd strike off center, uniface, at 1:00." I think the coin is off center, double struck, with 2nd strike brockage, as there are letters struck on what first appears as an indent. The letters are silvery white, as the strike was from a coin in the way of the 2nd strike, and the color is caused by the stretching of the copper skin over the underlying zinc. Please check it out and see if you agree.

Could it be a flip over strike?

Looks like the letters are mirrored on the obverse?

The slab description is completely wrong. This cent was only struck once. It's a broadstrike with a partial brockage.

Never look at the holder.

The lack of a rim impression along the internal margin of the partial brockage indicates that the brockage-maker was a minor broadstrike. Nothing particularly rare about that.

Thanks, everybody. Well it looks like I was right about the mislabeling, but have to agree with Mike, broadstrike with partial brockage.
