I mean struck through only one object where the strike through is visible on both sides of the coin. So something like a hard piece of debris rather than grease.
@Fred Weinberg to let us know if he has ever seen anything like this happen to any of the coins he has come across. I also believe that screws, nuts and bolts are a rare occurrence and some possibly man made errors.
slabbed coin (identified as a strike through) which had a very thin white plastic material wrapped around the obverse, edge, & reverse. Unfortunately, while it did pique my interest, & I took a moment to look at a close up (it did look genuine), I was not interested enough to record/remember the TPG or denomination. However, I did see it on FleeceBay.
on both sides of the coin. Usually, it's on one die
or the other, but it can transfer or get filled on both
in some cases.
State/Park Quarters and early Presidential dollars
are common with struck thru grease on both sides.
I know that grease strike throughs can appear on both sides. But I think what is being addressed by the OP is, can a piece of metal say, be struck through on one side with enough pressure for that same piece to show on the opposite side?
no - I've never seen such a coin.
If a thicker, strong, object was struck thru either
die, the other side -might- show a flattening area on the
opposite side, but not the object itself.
Thanks very much for your response.
This is the best I can do.

Not 100% sure. I’ve heard they’re from brushes mint employees use to clean the machines but really don’t know.
