    I've lightly buffed this and it is definitely a strike through. Have you seen this? Does it have a monetary value higher than face value?

    That is damage. If it had been an actual error/significant error. You ruined most of the numismatic value by buffing it.
    That is not an accepted practice.

    Rubbing it with my t-shirt to get grime off?

    Yup, cleaning, rubbing, buffing, etc... of modern coins detracts from the premium value.

    Not so much the material you use to wipe but the grit you scrub around on the surface
