What do you call this, looking for the right term.
It is part of the coin will not come off and is raised.

Normally a struck through would be incuse but if that is raised, maybe the thread is imbedded into the coin.
A retained struck through? Is there such a term?

Great pictures as always.

JimmyD,
i have not seen one in hand but I do know that "Retained Strike Through errors" are a real thing, only seen photos though.

I wouldent say its a "rare" occurrence but it can happen, I think depending on the size/thickness of the foreign matter plays a big part when it comes to being retained on the surface, if it is thin enough when the coin is being struck it can push the surface metal over top of it slightly keeping it in place.

Edit: Also, normally when something is raised on a coin it is incuse on the die, so MAYBE the strike through happened during the hubbing process, but even then we would probably see more of these if that were the case.

Thanks JohnWayne 007, I thought I had heard the term before but I wasn't sure.
So a "Retained Struck through" it is.

I think that it a metal shaving that fell into the die and then stamped on the coin. It would be nice to find out if the raised "retention" was the same metal as the coin or some other metal that the copper encased when it was struck.

Yes it would but I have no way of doing that.

Hi mcshilling

I have recently purchased a retained struck through from one of the members here, and it looks similar to your coin, but the strike through portion is not raised; it is at the same level as the rest of the design. I would think that a retained struck through would not be raised above the level of the surrounding area of coin unless it had become a bit loose, as the small wire shaving would have been struck into the coin metal at the time of minting and become thoroughly embedded. My experience with this type of error is somewhat limited, however, so there may be factors in play with which I am not completely familiar. Nice find, though!
