Looks like an Impaired proof only because something was partially laying on that raw proof coin to make that mark . I don't believe It's a smudge .

To me it looks like a back of the finger knuckle smudge.
I know from experience. Was stupid and in a hurry and thought I was clever pressing a proof LMC into my album with my knuckle. Left a mark just like that. If that is what it is and it's fresh and hasn't etched the coins surface you might be able to remove it with an acetone soak.

Strike through? It looks vaguely like this 2015 quarter, which I was told on here was struck through grease. Your closeup makes it look in the surface rather than on it.

What is a 'milk spot' in the context of coin collecting?

Whatever it is, it's probably only worth melt now.

Whatever it is, this is what I would do to see if it comes off.
1) Give it a soak in acetone to see if that does anything.
2) If the above is ineffective, then use E-Z-EST dip.

This should work if the contamination is surface only, if it has penetrated through the planchet, then nothing will remove it. I give it about a 20% chance of success.

It's not worth more than silver melt in its present condition.

Was hard to read but yes. Answers my milk spot question. Whooda thunk. Ivory soap residue permanantly stamped into the surface of the coin.

Thanks ccobb.
