    I try really hard not to argue with anyone on this forum, as i think it is unnecessary to do so. but there is no use for your language or for you to talk to someone like that!

    Although the photos are not ideal, I'm inclined to think that this is a genuine, in-collar, first-strike brockage. The strong finning of the obverse rim is a pretty good indicator of authenticity. That's a sign of increased effective striking pressure.

    What is an in-collar first strike brockage? And how do I get it authenticated?

    how can some folks possibly call this coin a squeeze job? I have said over and over on here that if someone or something severly damages one side of a coin by hitting or pressing something into it the other side will show damage also. Mike is right about what he said and this is a valuable coin because of it's age.

    EDIT: after thinking about the op's coin for a little longer I'm thinking this type brockage may be what is called counter brockage because the details are raised instead of being incuse. either way this is one awesome coin.

    An in-collar, first-strike brockage featuring the obverse design on the reverse face is a rare error. It begins when a newly-struck coin remains seated on the reverse (anvil) die and a new planchet is fed on top of it. Then the two discs are struck together within the collar.

    Mike you are right about this being a rare error. I have never been able to find one like this and have only seen photos of a few.

    I don't believe Mike was implying that the OP's coin is infact this error - just simply answering his question...

    Don't take this too hard...but Mike doesn't need confirmation from anyone. He is THE MAN when it comes to this stuff.

    Whatever you say will never bother me . I know that Mike knows about error and variety coins and there are thousands of old time coin collectors out there like me that also knows a little bit about them.

    I know that a photo on here can be deceiving but to me the image on the op's coin appears to be raised , if it is then it may be even more rare than what has been mentioned. It would have required a brockage coin with a negative image to somehow flip over and stay on the anvil die while another planchet was fed in on top of it and then struck. imagine how rare it would be for something like this to happen.

    EDIT: please just ignore this post. The op has added some new photos and it appears that the reversed images is actually incuse instead of raised , it still is a great error coin.

    who should i send it to? to get it verified and everything? if it's honestly as rare as you think it is, is there maybe an expert in my area that could help me with proving its authenticity?

    Well if you know so much about errors, why do you continually bicker with others and post threads looking for answers on what YOU believe is an error? :confused:

    nice coin! I like that the obv. has some railroad rim effect going on from around 5 o'clock to 11 o'clock. Is this what Mike referred to as indicative of a brockage?
