I hope you can tell from the pics, but the strike-through is fairly deep and seems to show ridges (like maybe it was made from screw threads?) and doesn't appear to have affected the obverse. Since it is somewhat unusual, I thought it might be of interest to you all.

Looks like a lamination. If the weight is slightly under it could be a lamination. If the weight is normal, then it is a struck through.

Could be strike through, with lamination issue in (very) close proximity. Weight would be good to know.

Yes it is kinda interesting looking--nice find. I'd love to know the weight though.

This it is more a ex-foliation then strike through. The weight, the perimeter forms of the missing part speak more about this. Also the lines see inside the missing part. This ex-foliation will continue, look at the at the line NNW.

Lam, but 10% less is a lot of weight for such a small lam. I'm going to say thin planchet to start out with. Along with wear.
