    Hi Missy: This would be a visible die clash reverse. It seems to be very common, in fact many times it is not even mentioned when offered for sale. If you flip the obverse picture upsidedown, you can see how the bottom waviness of the main device corresponds to the anomaly in the field from the "T" to the "O".

    Thanks for sharing,

    Also look at the obverse between Liberty's head and the liberty cap on the pole, you can see the loop of the ribbon from the bottom of the wreath on the reverse.
