I haven't found a struct through a die cap but maybe this is one. What's neat is it is struct through something on the reverse as well. Am I correct with my attribution ? Thanks for looking.

Interesting coin. (Reverse is a lamination problem.) - guess that can't be, it's a zincoln.

Oh yeah, just noticed small die cracks in both corners of the Memorial base. Nice find!
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

Working on Whitman Large Cent date set album 1793-1857 (57 holes filled of 64 total) now come the "toughies" - yikes!

It does look like it was struck through a late stage die cap, it's nice that the date is readable, definitely a plus in terms of value.

I agree with Mark's conclusion that the reverse has a lamination flaw, it probably wont have a significant effect on the coin's value one way or the other though.

All in all a very nice find and an interesting coin!

Very nice find and congratulations! It was Struck Through a Late Stage Die Cap on the obverse. On the reverse, you have a Die Crack, a Struck Through, and a Lamination as well. It's a multi error coin! Nice! http://www.error-ref.com/struck_thr...age_die_cap/

Edit: Make sure you put this in a 2x2 coin flip as soon as possible.

Thanks folks. I was hoping it was struct through a die cap. First one I've found. Will tuck it away in an air tight.

That's even better then! I didn't see the second one at first. Man, this coin is a complete mess, but in a good way of course!

It was probably a rolling indentation rather than a lamination

I'm not seeing a lamination on reverse, not that crisscross on right base. That looks like a struck through debris(horizontal) but the vertical indention looks me PSD of some sort.

Looks more like a struck through to me. Beings that zinc cents don't have lamination issues. Peeled plating struck through. But this is not a struck through foil. It is a lot stronger than foil.

This is why I posted my question hoping others would see their error.

Ya, with a die cap struck through debris seems more likely.

As certain others have concluded, the obverse was struck through a late-stage die cap while the reverse shows two overlapping struck-through errors.
