      Terms like "mushroom" and "saucer" are essentially uninformative, as
      they describe shape only.  Many different errors can assume one or
      the other shape.

      In this case you've got a broadstrike with a partial brockage created
      by an off-center cent.  Not all that unusual, but it would help sales
      if an accurate and thorough description is included.

      Exactly. The overlying coin that created the brockage was an off- center cent. You have an impression of the struck part and the unstruck part of the coin.
