I can't see what you're talking about, the image isn't clear enough.

It looks like it says America backwards or under a magnifying glass that what it looks like it is also up in the United States of America stamping also

No such thing as a miss print, there's multiple strike coins and a better image would help us determine what is going on.

when you hugeeyes this "reverse mirroring" of the 'lettering', that is "incuse" (into the coin surface) ...

:eureka:
this will indicate that another coin (top) was placed over this one, & when they were squeezed together, the lettering (or design) from the top coin will be "pressed into" the bottom coin .... JMO
