      Mike thank you I found pictures. Also Mike I spoke with PCGS today the third eye Harrison will be graded under "Mechanical Error"
      once I have coin I will take pictures of it.

I am worried that this would be something that PCGS might not understand or grade. I want to know as much as I can before moving forward. Also not very sure if I will have graded. I had an interesting offer on coin which makes me wonder what price on raw or graded should be for this coin.

However, assuming it is a real error, the only possibility I can think of is a case of "surface film transfer". This occurs if the die or a previous planchet has a little bit of oil or grime on it. If the preceding planchet is double-struck, with the second strike off-center, grimy details from the first strike are transferred to the die and these, in turn, are transferred to the next planchet (your coin). Such errors are exceedingly rare. I've only seen two (both dimes).

I want to send in the PCGS but as much as an error cost to grade, I just want to answer how this could of happened while minting coin. I listed one of the close up picture and I am going to list another picture that shows more of the coin. You can see error with your eye but needs magnifying glass to make out.
