    I’m not up to speed, due to my day in the hospital yesterday, but it looks like a die clash to me.

    It looks like the S-4 Doubled Die. Doubling on eye.

    These coins were stuck on copper-nickel which is really hard. It held up well in circulation. This coin looks like it's had a hard life to me. The sharpness grade is Choice VF, but the surfaces have too much going on to have come that way from the mint.

    Here's an MS-65 graded example, if that is any help.
