    The reverse seems to have an inversion of the eagle just below the normal design element.

    What am I looking at here?

    I also notice what looks like a small chip on the middle portion of the left eagle wing and maybe another at top of the bell, below the S of States.

    This is a mint set specimen which was photographed through the case. I personally removed the coins in this set from their respective cellophane packaging and placed them in the case. I still have a 59 P & D in the their wrappers as I have no case in which to place them.

    Paddyman I am leaning your way on this.

    Absolutely positively not PMD.

    Still it is a spitting image of the eagle and I believe this element is apparently inverted and (i am about to analyze the specimen now, once more) incuse which would normally be indicative of PMD so that is a natural response.

    What would the chip allude to @JPD3? Foreign matter in the striking chamber?

    There are several chips under STATES it appears.

    Chips might lead to the credence of struck through debris

    Meow said PMD because there seems to be a reeded edge looking impact amidst the area below the eagle.
