It's hard to imagine how a strike through debris could obliterate part of the building, yet have only a minimal effect on the letters. I think it was a lamination defect that broke off before striking, leaving a void that partially filled in when the coin was struck.

Can't design details be left behind by laminations or struck throughs that have fallen out?

IMHO, if the material is thin enough and has a similar composition for either one, the underlying details would still be visible when the metal fell out.

I'm basing my belief this is a struck through on the overall rectangular shape of the depression with clearly defined edges. Laminations tend to be more linear and are often ragged at the edges.

Loving this debate! At the first I thought lamination simply b/c it looks like one at first glance. But after thinking about it I changed to strike through. The uniformity is just not what delam errors exhibit and a thin foreign object would theoretically make something look like this. The object also would not necessarily have to have uniform thickness so one area could be deeper than another.
