    Answered: 1984 Double Ear?

    I am probably way off base here but is it possible that I found a 1984 double ear or a variation of such? Maybe a lame attempt by someone to create a facsimile of the error? Or maybe simply coincidental damage around the ear lob. Opinions welcomed. Thanks!

    I agree with Gilbert.

    But you do have a nice example of a cent with a massive amount of small plating bubbles that are on some of the early zincs.
