    I haven't bought a US coin in years, but sometimes I catch a coin I like at a decent price.
    I like error coins and Lincoln cents have plenty. I just couldn't resist this double error! What really sold it to me was the ragged clip, which I much prefer over the "usual" curved clip.

    When a coin is broad struck. All the details are gonna look distorted. That's a cool looking error.

    Super nice error coin.
    I find it interesting that your coin is not broadstruck on the reverse. It looks to be a centered partial collar. It also looks as if the blank it was struck on did not go through the upset mill due the lack of a proto rim on the obverse.

    I too wondered why the reverse looked almost normal compared to the obverse

    This coin I have is quite similar to your error coin, less the ragged clip.
    It is a centered parcial collar on a type 1 blank. Broadstruck on the obverse and
    in-collar strike on the reverse. I do believe this is a rare type of Error coin.
