E&V, for this to have been a piece of foriegn matter that fell out after the strike and reduced the weight of the coin then it would heve been rolled in bythe rolling mill and displaced the other coin metal , reducing it's weight, at the point.

I would lean toward a struck-through error involving a thin flake of metal, possibly derived from another planchet. The lack of any peeling along the edges of the depression and the absence of lamination cracks anywhere on the coin would support this conjecture.

I trust the opinions above. But I am personally curious as to why if it is a struck-through alone that it left the "GO" on GOD raised... it seems to cross through it's path, yet didn't seem to depress the letters. Maybe a bit on the "O"... but it almost looks like there is an overlap of metal on it...?
