    Ok so I no you all will say this is not an error but we put it under the scope and there is just no way this type of damage could happen post mint and I'll try to explain why then tell me what u think ok.

    Look at the circle were the error is then look at the side rim, theres no way it would not effect the edge if it was post damage this had to be when this coin was minted with some wierd error?
    It's to perfect and precise. To be post we think.

    Not an error. Not even close. Learn how the minting process works.

    Ok so u tell me how u melt a coin with like a car lighter or whatever enough to melt the coin but not touch any of the edge?

    When its melted all the way to the edge but not one mark on the rim edge?

    It's not melted. It's some kind of garbage on the surface of your coin. Mix it with some other damage and "Voila!" there's your "big error".
    Also, it is spelled "NICKEL". Not "nickle". We aren't French. :)

    Could be solder or something else. It is sitting on top of the obverse design. That is made clearer by your new pictures.

    Even if that WERE a mint error, and I doubt it is, in that condition it would literally be worthless.

    He says its almost impossible to melt it that bad but not effect the rim even in the slightest so therefore were confused!
