    Improperly Mixed Alloy Mint Error..
    Also know as a Woodie

    Here is some information -

    Quote - "A poorly mixed alloy can result in alternating light and dark streaks. This is often referred to as a “wood grain” pattern, and the coins themselves as “woodies”." Closed quote

    There are several threads on CoinTalk on these.. Do a search using the words -Improperly Mixed Alloy

    It looks like it has been heavily damaged on both sides, like a "parking lot" coin.

    Uh no probably not. Woodys are just very difficult to take a decent picture of.
