When I first found this I immediately thought lamination peel. Upon further review it looks like maybe it's been struck-through. Maybe it's both? Then there's the die crack that nearly transects the rim from top to bottom... Well, I'm a bit bumfuzzled and would appreciate any opinions and expertise. Thank you.

Looks like a lamination.

Very odd coin--I agree it looks like a huge lam. I agree it looks like a die crack. Why would the two exist in the same place on this coin?

I'm interested to hear more opinions.

definitely looks partly like lamination, but truthfully I do not know the full extent of what happened here

@Sudz, Thank you for the reverse pic.

Fantastic lamination!

To me, the weak "ERTY" of LIBERTY and the obliterated "D" of GOD, combined with the strong reverse strike, would suggest that the lamination peeled after the strike.

I'll ask a rhetorical question I've asked for decades: how could an error that obvious roam the channels of commerce for so long without being noticed? (It's found a good home now, though!)

Thanks for sharing this one. It's definitely an eye-catcher.

Can someone more knowledgeable than me explain what gives this away as a lamination as opposed to a strike-through error?
