I found a nice collection dump of 1938-1964 nickels at my local bank that I'm currently sorting through, and so far this easily takes the cake for best find. (Edit: weighed and confirmed strike through not a lam - 4.93 grams).

Very nice!! What does it weigh? That will tell you if a lam pealed away or not.
Collecting since 1972. Learning from then on

@Dearborn lol, of course, not sure why I wasn't thinking of that. Weighs 4.93 grams, so looks like huge strike through it is!

Check the weight to see if it is normal or not first.

@coinfrog @coop see my comment above yours, weight is 4.93 grams. Added this to the description to avoid further confusion.

So the weight is basically normal. So it was a struck through debris, that fell off the coin after the strike. The other .07 grams is just coin wear/tolerance. If it were a lamination issue the coin would be even lighter than normal. So it is a struck through debris.

I always like to help others to confirm a statement. Thus the question about weight? (In case it was a lamination) Weights can change my mind on a coin.

Wow that's a major strike through! Very cool find, congrats! I'd be quite happy to find an error this obvious and likely scarce CRH.

@coinhunter27 Thanks! I am loving this collection dump I stumbled onto. The guy apparently had been hoarding pre-1964 nickels and dumped $80 of them at my local bank, saying to the teller that "they aren't worth anything." So far, I've found a really excellent doubled die (1964 DDO-007) and this, which is probably the best error coin I've ever found coin roll hunting (in addition to filling up most of the common and somewhat scarce dates in the CRH nickel album I just started last week)

Wow that's a fantastic find Sam! I went to the bank today and picked up a few CWRs (taking advantage of the two weeks I have in the States), I plan to open them tomorrow.

I can only hope for such a find! Once again bravo!
