    The reverse was ground off after it left the mint. It's just a damaged coin.

    The reverse was ground off -- likely to be engraved as a love token [google it].

    now, just plain damaged

    All PMD. It looks like it started out to be a love token by some inexperienced person that gave up.

    Some one was trying something that did'nt quite work, but i think it was done in the late 19th century. Its just a fun piece with some unknown history.

    To get to that reverse, you would need to use a die with raised features. The U.S. Mint System only did that starting with the 1908 $2.50 and $5.00 gold coins. It ended in 1929 when those coins went out of production.

    @RelicKING , for future reference, if you have an error coin to post, there is a section just for error coins.
