Sorry, I definitely missed something as I thought the event was incuse from the pictures. If it's raised I'll have to run my mind around it a bit. So if it's raised there will be more examples out there!!!if this is the retained struck through or if it's a die rent there will be sister coins out there. Always fun to try and find a matching pair of errors. I stay away from zinc personally:)

Also I appreciate the nice comment
@-makesence-, I have been more focused in learning in the little spare time I have had rather then posting my own coins...why ask questions when the answer is easy to find.

Sure looks like it's recessed to me. Looks like stuck through maybe a wire. If it is above the surface, then it would be a die crack and I would think there were more of them out there. And I've never seen a die crack looking that perfectly round and straight.
It is well above both the fields and devices and if it were a retained strike through, it would be mashed flush or very close to being flush, from the strike of the hammer die. I was figuring things out, as this thread went on, I just didn't have the right thought process from the beginning.

I do agree that there should be more out there, if it is indeed a die gouge or what I think at this point is a die dent, maybe they have just been overlooked. At this point, it's the best fit, in my opinion.

I had just noticed your thought process and examination, with very detailed responses to different topics, lately. You have definitely been paying attention and reading up on different things, very impressive. Just nice to see someone new to coins, taking the time to understand, not just keep spouting out things.

Note on your image, the raised and fields are affected equally, meaning there was something in the chamber besides the planchet. S stronger and distinct size was there that altered the strike. Just like a piece of wire during a strike.

Note the wire left a rounded trench because of the wire shape.
A cut on a coin will affect the coin differently. The trench will show a flat bottom and sometimes showing sometimes striation lines on the bottom of the trench.
