Answer
Hi Beck,

Unfortunately it looks like you have strike doubling there, but that is an interesting bit of extra metal on the reverse -- maybe a die gouge?

Dan

p.s. a die gouge is when something has scratched against the die, leaving an indentation in the die, so that coins struck with this die will then have an added bit of raised metal where the gouge is.  The effect is similar to a die crack in that they both leave a bit of raised metal on the coins struck with that die.  Value is pretty minimal, unless it gets widely publicized -- like the Wisconsin quarter "extra leaf", which was from a die gouge.

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
