I forget the exact details, but it's a very interesting variety. Perhaps someone can do it justice?
In the meantime, here's the obverse in MS63.

The dies came together with a small bolt between the dies. The spike on the chin was caused by the head of the bolt damaging the obv die and you can see on the coin posted by DVCollector the damage done to the obv die by the threads of the bolt.
