I posted the nickel a while ago, but since then I managed to find a 2004 dime that also has a thread strike through on the reverse.

I also managed to find a 1 cent penny with a small thread strike through on the reverse but I have misplaced it in my randoms pile so I could not include photos at the moment.

The coins are fairly circulated which is a shame, but it is still a cool little side project I have been working on to create a full set for 2004.

Do you think that they are actual threads from a cloth or maybe metal shavings? Would anyone know who has visited the mint and asked the question?

okiecoiner,
both are either thread from cloth, or very thin twisted wire, closer magnification shows that it is twisted and frayed at the ends.

Thanks 007 ... I always wondered what those "threads" really were. The fact that they are twisted narrows it down.

My bet is these are metal 'threads'. Small shavings from things like rim burrs, planchets getting slightly sheared by the collar die, and the like. Often, I find these with the "thread" retained, and the material is the same as the host coin. Quite common with 1968 nickel dollars. Also, usually seen with nickel 50c and nickel dollars, are fragments of bronze wire (or thread) struck through and retained (a few are on eBay now).
