This is not a mint error but a hand punch was used to counter stamp a phallus symbol on the coin. Wouldn't be one of a kind either, if one was created then it was used on other coins as well, you just haven't found more yet.

Why would the reverse be concave in also, and it appears to have cursive writing in it, it is not the branches of the tree and if it was punched from the front side wouldent it push or bend the reverse out,? Bare with my silly thoughts, but ive done my share of punching of metal

Also if it were hand punched would you see parts of the word united somewhere the U and part of the N are not visable,? They simply are gone, i would think they should be seen somehow, ?
