While searching cents over the years, I've found quite a few grease filled die cents. While I was sorting the coins I set aside today, something made me question whether this coin is a grease filled die or something else? What category do y'all believe it goes in?

Could it be a later stage capped die?

The really faint looking Lincoln Memorial on the obverse is what had me questioning whether it was a grease filled die?

Not a Struck Capped Die error. It's a Struck Through Grease error. Great find!

That's why I was leaning towards capped die but I am no expert in that area
