Looks like a struck through to me as well. Really cool to see that there are two extreme examples known that are clearly from the same die where the debris did not shift much, that happening let alone being discovered is probably very rare.

Yeah, it was a chance discovery that I happen to read the other person's subreddit post and I remembered that I just recently found a very similar one in one of my penny roll hunts. Got me excited that there was another penny in the same batch.

My guess, if in fact, it was struck through an object stuck to the die, most likely other examples exist. I don't see any identifying markers, a full shot of the second example would be very helpful.
I personally agree that it appears as a struck through.

I meant a closeup of the date and bow tie area. That way I can see if anything is flattened.

Could it be struck through thick gritty grease?

Unfortunately, I'm not too familiar with the varieties of struck through errors.

Really nice closeups. Very clear.

It does appear that whatever it was stuck through did move a little. It was probably grease, as the shape changes as well.

Your appears slightly smaller, so I'd venture to guess your's was struck first. Subsequent strikes would have spread the grease out some.

Thanks!

Could be, if ever there was a way to find the other pennies from the same batch.

Looks more like a struck through. Not seeing any flattening on the obverse. What did happen on the obverse is over polishing that reduced the bot tie and the jacket.
