I came across what I thought was just an old gouged, damaged Lincoln cent, but then I realized there were letters on top of the gouge. I figure this was just a case of a damaged planchet, but I also wondered whether this might possibly be a strike through of a piece of fiber or debris. Because the letters, particularly the G in GOD and R in LIBERTY seem unaffected, is it correct to assume that this is a case of a damaged planchet, and not a strike through?




Thank you for any input.

Please show us the reverse. It is always a good idea to show us overall shots of your coin, both sides, and then one or two close-ups of the area in question.

It is a light lamination caused by impurities in the flan. This is quite a minor example, and cents of this vintage seemed prone to this type of fault. 2x2 Worthy, but not rare or valuable.
