Is this a struck thru error

#1 Unread post by Leonel » Mon Jun 18, 2018 7:55 pm

Hello all,

Sorry it's been a while. I would like to ask if this weird shaped thing on the obverse of my 1994 P Jefferson Nickel could be a struck thru error? If not, what could it be?

P.S. All pictures are of the same coin, and there has been no alteration.

Thanks

Leonel.

Thank you. I'll look up lamination errors.

Hey Paul,

Is the question about the weight for the nickel or the quarter?

Thanks

It's staining from something being on the coin of that shape. Could have been tissue, paper or something of that nature. Looks like ink from a wet newspaper or something printed.

Leonel,
Have you tried soaking this nickel in acetone?
Sometimes if there is residue left on coins from tape, there will be an odd shape left on the face of the coin.

Another thing, since you have the coin in hand, can you tell if the area is raised in relief or recessed (incuse) or neither?

Topics fixed, has two different members post two different coin questions. I can split topics but it's not a perfect fix and takes time when there's three different topics in a thread.

As far as the coin is concerned, this coin has toning or is stained, could have been against wet news print or something.
