This is a neat one, but I just can't get my head around what or how this was struck through. At first I just assumed it was an ordinary struck through die cap, but after looking at it a bit I just can't be sure.

Things I see are: The rim is not beveled but steep and high. The coin has a very shiny surface similar to struck through die cap coins. The surface is covered in parallel raised lines, which at first I thought were from the strike through but could just be linear plating blisters. There is quite the depression below Lincoln's ear, and a nice bump in the field above the date (kinda looks like a roated die cap strike that could put the date there).

Any/all help is appreciated with this one.

That is a very nice example TB. Could it be cloth that bunches up in different areas. I've found impacted lead that has the cloth weave patterns from what was hit.

A very interesting piece and an amazing pickup! The closest strike through to this coin I can think of right now would be cloth but I'll give it more thought when I've got some more brain power in the morning.

Interesting how it effected the rim on both sides.

My first thought was struck through fabric due to the surface appearance but I doubt just fabric would impair that amount of detail. It would more likely be a die cap in my opinion.
Cool error...

Interesting coin! Looks like an early struck through die cap, and my guess is the striations are from the planchet itself. Does the direction of the lines correlate with the linear striations on the reverse?

Was thinking a die cap too has that look to it

After giving it some thought this morning, I would say this looks like a die cap to me. With cloth I usually see a pretty definite pattern. Maybe we'll have to ask Mike Diamond?

Quite a nice one! Beautiful example of a struck through, my vote goes to die cap.

Struck through a deteriorating die cap. Not the actual cap on the die. The design could be full on the inside of a die cap:

Just struck though a deteriorating die cap:

They start to look freaky then.
