I just purchased one of these last night from the Shysters on Shop at Home.  Do any of you have one?  Will post a picture after I receive it.  The one attached here is from Shop at Home's website.

 

That's pretty cool JJ. It's also interesting that it is a PCGS certified "attribution", with no number grade, but an unc designation.

 

The buck teeth are, apparently, the result of a die clash - from the reverse eagle's tail feathers. The idea is that the dies come together without a planchet in between as would normally occur during minting. Eventually, the die gets scored and the coin gets an unintential impression. I think there were a couple of dates for the Bugs Bunnies with 55 being the most common.

 

This link explains it better than I can -> link here
