    What is that near the last T in trust? Could it be a struck through? Kind of looks like a small chain!! Edit! Title should have said Struck Through!

    Looks like a Thread to me. Is it a raised or recessed line ? @1stSgt22

    There is nothing wrong with saying that it may be a strikethrough. It would also be correct to say it was struck through (a specific object). I see the grading services often use the phrase "Struck Through" which from an English point of view sounds kind of stupid. It sounds more appropriate to just identify the coin in a slab as a Strikethrough. We should never accuse the grading services with being staffed by a bunch of English teachers.:eek:

    Could be a thread! I didn't think it was a chain, just thought it looked like one!!

    Kind of looks like a delicate chain link with a clasp at the end. If it was strong enough, say made out of stainless, it might have survived the striking pressure and laid partially above the level of the field.

    I think @1stSgt22 , that it's one of those incidents where we may never fully know what occurred here .

    I don't have the coin in hand. If forced to guess, my reply would be PMD that coincidently has the appearance of something else.

    I tend to think it’s a one of a kind coin. I also think this is not a get rich coin. It looks like a small or fine chain broke and fell into the pot of melted copper and was filled out, made into a planchet and finally it became a coin. It’s a 1972-D so it’s not plated but it’s covered with copper. I’m not an expert and I don’t claim to be so don’t crucify me for my thinking. :)

    Dearborn Above average collector - Is that an Error?

    Very interesting cent. sure looks like a tiny chain going down from top to bottom then bunched up a bit then it looks like the chain goes back up again.

    How much can these be worth because they can be very easily faked or made?
