So I found a penny that has a weird cut through it. I've heard of wire errors but I don't know if this is one of them. It is in fairly decent quality so I don't think this is an environmental thing.

Not a struck through wire as the edges would be smooth.
You can see the raised edges where it has taken some sort of cut.

Your right on both accounts.
