    Welcome and we look forward to your posts.

    This appears to be an example of struck through grease, where some industrial grease from the machinery partially filled the T of the die. The grease interferes with metal flowing into the die cavity in this area.

    (If you include the year of your coin you'll have a better chance of finding the info at a later date if you need to.)

    Welcome to the LCF! Thank you for coming here to share your finds with us! Don't worry about technical stuff right now, we will help you along! There is a category called "Off Topic Discussion" for coins that are not Lincolns. No worries on this one, Jim our Moderator, can move it to the right place for you later

    Welcome to the LCF... I moved your thread to Off Topic Discussion forum... Cool first post... I think Cliff nailed it a nice struck thru grease... Here are a couple of links to help you out -

    From our Glossary -

    Struck Through: A struck-though error happens when a foreign object gets between the dies and an unstruck planchet. When the dies strike the coin, the foreign object will also be struck into it, leaving an incuse impression in the coin. The “foreign object” may be anything, such as cloth, wire, grease, dirt, metal scraps, or even another coin which had stuck to one of the dies, called a die cap.
    Struck Through Filled Die: The most common form of struck through, a cent that is struck though a filled die will have missing or weak design elements. Since that portion of the die is filled or clogged with grease or dirt, that portion of the design will not be struck on the coin. Although this can affect any portion of a coin, some of the more well-known instances in the Lincoln series are the 1922 “Weak D” cents, as well as some of the “no FG” cents.

    Struck Through Late Stage Die Cap This is a coin that was struck by a capped die which has already struck many other coins. The face of the die cap gets thinner and thinner with each strike, as it expands outward. After striking so many additional planchets, the face of the die cap will be thin enough to allow parts of the normal die design to appear on the struck planchets, yielding a ghost-like image of the bust and other devices. As the die cap continues to strike coins, more and more of the normal design elements will show on the struck coins until the die cap completely deteriorates away.

    Hope that helps a bit... Lots of knowledgeable folks here ready to help you out!!!
