Anyone have opinions or information on this odd coin?  It is very very thin and weighs 1.9g.  Thanks.

This is actually quite a rare error. The coin was more than likely struck on a seperated clad layer from a blank. I would recomend getting it certified. Thanks for sharing.

WOW great looking coin. I agree this should be confirmed as to what type of error and certified. It does look to have been struck on a single clad layer.

struck on scrap metal, or a single clad layer

needs to go to a major auction
