I was wondering what is the difference between a ghost letter penny and a struck through grease penny?

"ghost letters" - that's a new one to me
I think I see scratches or wear marks.
Can you post an image of the other side of the coin?

Normally on struck through grease or grease filled dies, the missing metal usually forms something on the opposite side of the missing letters.

to CCF. If that is dated in the 1980'S,most likely the late 80's it is common for that era.

Looks like polishing and maybe a little grease if any

With more areas affected on the coin, I'm more inclined to think this is a struck through grease issue.

Grease seems like the most logical guess.
