Admittedly entomology isn't my primary pursuit, but given a guess I'd think it looks like a cicada wing. But if so it should be much larger. On the other hand it also looks like a termite wing. Or, well, probably a lot of possible stuff. If it is truly a struck through and not just a stain or glue impression or whatever, then it would be worth getting an ID on it for sure. The way I am seeing the marking cross the devices I am in doubt that it is a struck through at this point but look forward to following this one.

@sarge, could you please give this coin a bath in acetone and then repost a pic of this area? I'm speculating that it is dried glue on the surface of the coin.

If it was struck through it would have severe distortion in the wing across the 9. Acetone will destroy the wing.

@TwistedTrader....yep I just couldn't stop till I found the matching wing, LOL! Don't want to ruin by dipping it in acetone so gonna card it just like that in my "Strange & Unusual" Box! When I posted it I never thought of looking at the overlap on the 9 and as everyone pointed out it can't be a
Strike through! Appreciate everyone's input!
