    I think this is a struck through grease and debris error. On the obverse the "LI" in LIBERTY appears normal , but the rest struck through. It looks like something got in the recesses of the die in "BERTY". The chin is also suspect. On the reverse there is a "2" at top of left wheat stalk. It appears to have been on the planchet before the strike.

    There is a "2" in the left wheat. It is a normal size 2. I can see the 2 clearly with a magnifying glass. I believe it was on the planchet at the time of strike. Thanks guys!

    Yes. I can actually see the vertical lines breaking through where they cross the 2. The 2 looks embedded in the wheat.

    It's an illusion, not a 2.

    It's all circulation damage. You can see the flattened letters and a dent in his chin. Looks nothing like a strikethrough.
