    I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

    I've never seen one like it until now. How did this happen and what is the proper name for it? BTW... It's slightly tapered. 20210413_100648.jpg 20210413_100604.jpg 20210413_100523.jpg 20210413_100450.jpg 20210413_100415.jpg 20210413_100340.jpg 20210413_100301.jpg ?

    @paddyman98 check this out

    Looks like an authentic mint error to me, idk what to call it though. Maybe the planchet wasn’t perfectly cut or something...

    Nice toning on the coin. Is it yours or an eBay listing?

    I'm not totally sure o_O

    Some kind of tilted collar strike with some weird finning.

    Maybe a stiff collar error. What's curious is that it appears mostly retained by the collar but oozed over the top...kind of like finning. Interesting.

    Very nice! Hope you can find out what it’s called and how much it’s worth :)

    I think I would send that one in to see what it would be called when graded/attributed!!! Really unique and I like the toning too!!!

    I agree. I think that the finning folded over making it look this way.
    @Double Die have you tried taking your photos on a more neutral background? Grey or a black? White can play tricks and make the coin over exposed.

    Man I wish those closeups were clearer. To dx this one you have to see it. While many common errors can be dx’ed on blurs, not this strange thing, this needs much better.

    I will put it under the scope instead of my phone for much better pics over the weekend and post them.
