It could be a die clash, as @hotwheelsearl suggested, but I'm not so sure. Alternately, it could also be a "vise job" (a coin that was somehow smashed or squeezed against another coin as a result of great pressure). In this case, I'm not so sure which is the case. Perhaps someone else will know. It's certainly interesting.
I think you’re probably right. So a vise job, then, or something similar.
Incuse elements that aren't present in the exact same place on the opposite side of the coin are always after mint modifications.
I'm not seeing anything on the reverse of that coin that would raise that element between the V and S on the obverse.
A real puzzler.
