Also think I'm seeing some die deteriotion on obverse & maybe grease filled die on reverse "OF"?

Imho, it definitely looks like struck through grease. Not sure on the struck through cloth.
Looks more like a fingerprint to me. Cloth should have lines in two directions.
The reverse may be a Struck Through Debris, But this area is known to be a common weak spot for LMC's.
Here is a half dollar of mine that is actually struck through cloth. Compare to yours and note the difference:
but you see it continuously top to bottom in various degrees. So probably linear plating blisters would be my guess.
But I don't know, and it's an odd pattern. While it may not be struck through
cloth, it could be struck through something thin that had this pattern, like tape?
No. It's environmental whatever it is/was.
either a fingerprint or some other pattern
The reverse is a common week spot due to the design so the "of" appears as s struck through.
No matter what the cause it's only worth face value.
I don't see fingerprints. The lines are too straight.
good job. Thanks for sharing
Im thinking this 1996 Lincoln cent reverse may be the same thing you described? Im not necesarily thinking these coins i post are worth more than face value, just trying to learn so I know what im looking at when i find it!
Imho, yes exactly.
I believe a struck through cloth coin;disrupts the image. So if it was placed over the object while being struck. The image will not come out clean and clear.
I have seen this many times as well. Imho, it’s probably from adhesive tape. Perhaps used to close the end of a coin tube roll that was not closed properly.
If it's not, then please tell me what it is. It appears a little differently than what the photo shows. It's not anything that can be washed off, as it appears to be etched into the coin and looks like a fingerprint.
That's a fingerprint. I think once the oils from the skin sit on it for awhile, it etches into the coin and you are SOL. Not sure if acetone would help or not.
