Seller claims this is a struck through mark. When I first saw it I assumed PMD. But I am not very good with errors. What do you guys think? And does it help or hurt the value?

@lk, is it the linear mark below the F or the double-arc above the M that you are talking about?

Double arc above the M. I think the other one is just lint on the case.

Sorry, just realized I had '86 in the title. It's actually a '96. Not that it should make a difference on what type of mark it is.

Ok good to know. Here is a close-up of the region of interest.




I'm not 100% sure, but my best guess is that it looks more like a little damage than a strike-through. Let's see what the others think.

Probably more of a contact issue on the rim. There is also a faint showing of a collar clash.

But does that add to the value? If I buy it, is it worth getting attributed?

I would have a hard time spending $50 to slab a coin worth 25 cents. The coin would have to be worth a lot in order for me to slab one. ($100-$200 range)

@coop, just to be clear, the OP's coin is a silver American Eagle not a quarter. I agree not worth slabbing, but it is worth more than 25˘.

Update, ANACS gave it a 69, which makes it worth more than I paid. But did not attribute the error. Emailed them, reminding them that they are supposed to be good at errors and varieties. They said with their guarantee I am always welcome to send it back for another look. Had to send another coin back because it was rotated in their slab. (they graded two coins for free to make up for that) But it also gave me a chance to send this SAE back

I printed off the email and highlighted the area where I talked about them being good with errors. This time it came back Struck Through Debris. Not sure if it adds a lot of value. Probably to the right collector. But at least if I go to sell it (or my kid does after I'm gone) buyers will know this was something done at the mint. Not PMD that the grader just missed.

Since I got it graded as part of one of ANACS's specials, and I was already getting 10 other coins graded, this one only cost me $10.

Key date SAE. I spent $42 on ebay, $52 with grading. Numismedia has an MS 69 at $120. Plus any additional an error collector might pay. I think I did ok.

You will find out sore sure when you sell it. I pay nothing extra for a slabbed coin. Just the current book value for the grade.

A TPGs opinion broadens my market. I can't tell the difference between a 67, 68 or 69 from pics on the internet. Yet prices on this coin rise $80 from 67 to 69. The average SAE buyer prob can't tell either. Maybe many experts on here can. But when listing a coin on ebay, or GC, I don't want only experts knowing it's a 69. I want the average buyer to know that too. So a TPG makes sense. Especially since I can't list a number grade on ebay without the coin being in an ANACS, NGC, PCGS or ICG slab.

Unlike collectors for other coins, I think buyers of ASEs are looking/want perfect coins, so in my opinion, the mark whatever the cause, would decrease the value of the coin, not increase it.

For what it's worth, I think this is a post mint contact mark, not a strike through.

@lance, thx for following up on this thread with more information. Good thing I don't work at a TPG.
