 :huh:

Gosh ...  and it's even graded by PGCS... I wonder how and if NGC grade it?

It's hard to believe, but I guess there are certain parts of society we probably don't understand... An interesting world these collectors indeed... To know that there are collectors around that pay a fair bit cash for these unique 'screw-ups' eh... coins. Whatever floats your boat I guess... :D Some one definitely nailed it. $$$$

I think some mint employee was doing some extra-curricular "research" or just fooling around.
