Appears to be a Struck Through Boot Appearance on the Reverse? The Struck Through is located below the Eagles Tail-Feathers and is close to being centered in between the two Leaves. I rotated a photograph of the Struck Through in the Vertical position for a normal upright view since it's tilted. Any ideas what material caused the Struck Through? Any thoughts? Thanks.

I wish I could say someone made a boot stamp and put it on your coin but I can not say that so I am going to say it is just damage.

Thanks for the comments and it does look like a women's boot.

Note the light and shadows on this one. Note the devices are showing light in one direction on image #3. Then note the affected area. The light is opposite. So this is not raised on the coin, but an incuse mark from damage on that area. Because the light and shadows are in opposite directions on image #3.
