    1955 Buffalo Numismatic Association token. Very neat! Check all the lettering and date very closely...

    Impressive all, but what's going on between A and G, in CAGE? Can't imagine what that would be doubled from.

    Reminds me of my first attempt to use White Out in typing class. :)

    could be the first engraving had imperfections they noticed upon striking, so they fixed it rather than produce another die

    Cool piece. I'm guessing the doubling came from the lettering being hand punched into the die.

    Love the break in the M's in NUMISMATIC.

    Being as it's a numismatic club token, maybe all those error types were created intentionally as an inside joke for the membership ? :cool:
