I think this would be a variety, not an error.
Some more knowledgeable assistance should be along soon.
Variety...….Error......big deal! We don't have a Variety forum.
Maybe @Peter T Davis should have the Error forum changed to Errors & Varieties.
Basic Rule of thumb
A variety originates from the die manufacturing process. Therefore the variation exists in the die and is transferred to and consistent on every coin struck by that specific die.
An error originates from the coin manufacturing process. Therefore is not transferred from the die and consistent.
A roll of large cents?
Thanks for the reference. I was thinking it was an over date because the number lines under the 8 and 6 appear to be of different numbers, at least the line from the 8 does because it's not part of a loop or circle, but looks like it might be the tail of a backwards 6 or something else. Also, the underlying 4 appears to be backwards. How does that even happen? Looks like the die setter was drunk or couldn't see well. lol
Yeah, somebody was selling one on Etsy, so I thought "eh, what the hell" and bought it just to see what was in it. Mostly culls, of course. At least I haggled him down to about half of what he was asking for it.
The correct terminology should be known, and used, regardless of your opinion, or the forum it's on.
It's helping a new member, and others, learn, and was "on topic".

Yeah, the correct terminology should be used. It's strange, though, that I never see you correcting anyone when they say double die. Why is that?
Separate names with a comma.
