Appears to be a Large Struck Through Burr on a portion of the Shield on Reverse? I photographed different angles of the Struck Through. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Looks more like damage. You can see some displaced metal at the edges.
A Struck Through would have smoother a edge.

It looks like struck through a decent sized rim burr. There may be an unplated spot on the edge of the coin.

Thanks JimmyD and Willburton for looking. Very much a[ppreciated. The appearance of an un-plated spot on the edge of the coin is my bright lighting and made it appear to be un-plated at the edge of the coin. The Lincoln Shield coins reflect too much sometimes while taking the photographs.

If the bottom of this trough wasn't plated also, then I would be leaning more toward damage. With it either completely or nearly completely still plated, I wonder if it isn't struck through. I'm interested to see what others think too.

I've went back and looked at this several times because it's bothered me. The reflection of light, off of different points of the coin, is what I use much of the time to pick things apart. There is nice shadowing in the area I've circled, which shows a depression in the burr, right at the shields edge. This makes me want to believe it happened at the mint but who's to say the same thing could not have happened in the wild, I guess. Food for thought.

Thanks Spence and makecents for reviewing. The Lincoln Shield Cent does not exhibit any type of unplated areas on the coin. The first photograph presented shows the actual color of the rim burr without the bright lighting reflection.

Nice rim burr. I have a couple but do not remember the dates.

Thanks John1. I remember seeing a very nice rim burr of yours posted awhile back and the rim burr was on the obverse. I believe it was a 2014 Lincoln Cent Shield and Coop generated an illustration for educational purposes.
