    Mike, welcome to the Forum! Even enlarging the pic, I'm having a hard time seeing it. Can you get a closer, clear pic? Maybe check out "Struck Through" in the glossary though. http://www.lincolncentforum.com/term...list-s/#Struck Through

    I'm with Jon on clearer images.
    Without them, I'm going to have to say PSD (Post Strike Damage).
    Something hitting the surface of the coin and distorting/shifting the metal out of place.

    Welcome to the forum! It does appear to be damage. Also, the correct term is doubled die

    Welcome to the LCF mikeman001! I'm guessing you are using your cell phone for pics? You can get an attachment for some phones to get closer pics that seem to work well, or if you are in the market for a camera/scope just let us know and we can direct you to some informational threads!
