    Thank you to CollectingNut and others for identifying it for me!

    Found a match at Mad Die Clashes.
    In bays 7 & 8 are unusual clash marks. Overlays suggest that it is part of Lincoln’s bears and throat. The degree of rotation is about 8 degrees and the misalignment about 5%. This is not enough to constitute a MAD clash entry, but enough to substantiate its inclusion in the Atypical files.

    The obverse was void of any clash marks.

    Here is the only error I have found. Sent to PCGS and graded as heavily clashed die MS 63. The only thing I really noticed was the line from the earth to the eagles head. Thanks to Coin Talk I knew it was special after another member told me what I had. s-l1600.jpg s-l1600.jpg s-l200(3).jpg s-l1600.jpg
