This is interesting. A wild speculation, but given it's a Philly mint and first year of issue, could it be a reverse die made from a hub that was used in the final development of the design and still showing traces of the adjusted details?

Paul,

While we await Daniel’s scrutiny, do you mind if I chime in?

The V.D.B. tells me this is one of the very first issues of a new issue, first week, I believe. My experience with numismatics is pitiful, not so in matters of manufacturing research and development. Paul, I’ve seen you – on the forum -- first study for yourself and then teach the owner about a coin by the exercise of superimposing a transparent reverse over an opaque obverse in order to assess alignment. In this coin I see (DOESN’T mean it’s there!) workmen wanting to improve their work and superimposing their improvement over an earlier version for purposes of study.

I’ve got a fair supply of ’09 V.D.B.’s. I’ll enjoy a future project of checking to see if all the wheat stalks on all the samples are the same length.

Kevin

K,
I don't think I have superimposed any images in such a long time… So long ago I can't remember when…

This is the actual coin, no funky monkey business with image manipulation whatsoever

Wait a Red Cent minit, Paul are you asking us drooling knuckle draggers for an opinion? Hah, to show you my ignorance, I thought the "Fly In Club" had something to do with EAA in Oshkosh, I said to myself, cool Paul is a pilot also, until I clicked on the link 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Anyway my opinion, it is cool and unique, attribute it, grade it and sell it. (yes Darwinian capitalist). $$$$
