Here's a great struck-thru grease error I just picked up. These typically aren't overly eye appealing but I found this one really neat looking since the reverse looks like a bison coming out of the mist under the year 1861!

This great coin comes from Jon @SullivanNumismatics ! Thanks Jon!

I wrote a longer article on this in Mint Error News here:

    Thanks for publishing it Mike! MEN is a great place to post about the coin in posterity as it will always be available there!

    Of course, the great thing about the PCGS forums is the ability to chat about it so they are both great!
