Found this little circulated Kansas 2005. It has the ghost T and a bit of a Ghost P. Also some other things going on.

Along with the ghost there's something else going on.

There is an abrading of the surface that is NOT circulation damage. All of that is on the Obverse. The same abrading is on the reverse.

Then also on the reverse there are rays coming off the back of the buffalo.

Not an expert on this and not sure what I have. You tell me.

To CCF! Struck Through Grease. It was pretty common for that year, for some reason.

Also best to photo coins outside of 2x2's. Plastic could hide or add things, agree with grease, reverse could be, most likely, a faint fingerprint... and good luck hunting

Looks like feeder finger damage from what I can see:

The angle is different though. But the dies anvil/hammer location maybe a different setup? Minor though if it is.
