I just used different lighting. Why are you so confident it didn't leave the mint that way, what makes it different than other struck through items that left the mint. Not that you're wrong, just curious what tells you that?
I was thinking more sloppy worker or working conditions at the mint type of scenario. I think we've done a commemorative coin with a hologram but nowhere near 94. You would think if someone was trying to get away with a scam they'd pick something more believable.

I would like to see a coin that was struck at the US mint with the same size Hexagram punch for commemorative purpose,business strike or proof I know you don't want to believe it was done after it left the mint but it was. It's more of a curiosity than anything else

It was someone playing around goofing off in their garage. People do strange things to coins
