    None of your pictures work. My guess is that it is a scratch across the coin.

    Looks like a scratch. The metal movement on the rim is in one direction, that shouldn’t happen to a struck through. By the original pictures the anomaly also appears rough. JMHO

    Definitely a scratch. Raised metal on both sides of the furrow.

    I trust all the opinions that I have received, thank you. Just would like you to take a peek at something that is bugging me. The leaf that is directly under the right angle and arrows has a piece of the leaf line over the groove and does not look out of line where it should be. How does a scratch get under that section of leaf line/ shouldn't it go over the top? I am looking at it under scope so don't know if you all can see what I see. Also I should have said I think it was a staple not paper clip.

    With a cut like that into the coin it's called PMD or to put it another way, it's damaged. Welcome to CT.
