Spiked Chin. Cohen 8. Manley Die State 3.0. I have wanted to own one of these from the time that I saw it listed in my first Red Book in 1962. From the November 2014 Heritage Beverly Hills sale where it was partially described as: " A medium brown example of the famous " Spiked Chin " variety, caused when a bolt ( or some other hard object ) was struck into the obverse die. The surfaces of the present coin are unblemished and attractive.".
