    It's offered at about a third of retail for the grade, and frankly if I'd had the disposable income I'd have bought it on sight.

    My first thought is that it was struck through a piece of canvas. I don't know.

    Looks like blast damage.

    Question: if it were struck through something, wouldn't things like the stars on the obverse show some malformation?

    Do I see the code correctly did they give it a 92, which would be cleaning?

    I'm still wrapping my brain around it; might be possible for the metal to have forced its' way in past what looks like rough cloth weave although your point is stuck in my head as well. The certainty to me, though, is you couldn't create that look on the coin postmint without damaging the stars.

    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    This is definitely not damage as far as pmd. This was done before the coin was struck or during . I'm in the damaged platchet group.
    And Ken the only thing you can get at IHOP is silver dollar pancakes .

    Agree with the cloth. Perhaps it struck a few coins and poked some holes in it...then it struck this one. Could be a mint employee caught the others but this one slipped though.

    I bet it could get resubmitted as an error or strike through

    The stopper for me is, that old, coarse cloth was tough. The smallest fragment forced into the star recess of the die would have made a visible impression.

    I'm fascinated by this coin. :)

    My off the cuff guess is that the planchet was hit with some kind of hammer or something before the strike.

    Was it struck through a cleaning rag?
