Hello,

I noticed this mark on a Barber Half I have. It seems deliberately placed and of definite shape. Maybe I just have too much time since I'm not cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year! Anyway, opinions would be appreciated. Thanks everyone and have a great and safe holiday!

Seems too coincidental that this mark would appear that close to the "R", which is clearly damaged.

To my eyes (untrained in these matters) the coin looks struck-through a uniform object. I'd love a better image of the slope of the "canyon walls" to see if they add or detract from my perception of uniformity.

No. I cannot imagine the nature of an object nor how an object that tiny, could be at the New Orleans mint in 1898, nor can I explain to myself the near perfection of placement. Coins (bless them) present know-nothing fools like me with so many precious puzzles and mysteries. It's great having found a safe venue to voice my ignorance and see it lain alongside expertise.
