    Very cool looking!! I'm looking forward to the answers. There's a lot going on with both sides of that coin!

    Some incuse elements do seem to be visible. Looks like the building causing the "wavy" look to the obv.
    Not real sure but a coin struck through a die cap is also known as a brockage I think.
    I've never come across one myself so congrats.

    Edit: I forgot to include it looks like the rev. was struck through an extra piece of metal under the right side of the building.

    I don't know about these but it does look similar to the struck through late stage die cap on error-ref.com (the first Lincoln of the three)

    You can send a PM to Mike Diamond and ask him to take a look for you. His PM address is mikediamond

    let us know if you need any help!

    From what I have read, images I looked at and the feedback I received on this error, it is struct thru a capped die "brockage" on the obverse. The reverse is struck thru something. Probably had something to do with the die cap ? First one I've found. Thanks for the link VAB. and thanks for the input Pete.

    Yes I did after my last post (couldn't resist). Mike did say that it was struct thru a late stage die cap and that the reverse was 2 overlapping strike thru errors.
