Please confirm as an Strikethrough Coin Error.

I am new at this and I want to learn from the best - In my opinion this is a Strikethrough - BUT - I would truly Appreciate a second opinion.

Sincerely: Buster

Looks that way most likely. I'd personally need to see that one in hand. The pictures mute the defect for my mind a little to much to put 100% on it.

Looks amazing! Did you find it still in a mint set? I found one once with a struck thru in the same area on the obverse. It was up when I was visiting Andy, and Ike looked like he was smoking a big fat "cigar".
The 73-P is one of the toughest errors to find when putting together an Ike error set.
Looks good to me from the pics.

Happy Hunting!
Brian

I am sorry to inform you that I did not - I acquired this coin from someone else - and she stated that she was given this coin as a gift in a 2 x 2 cardboard flip when she made a purchase from a friend. So very sorry - Because I know it means a lot if it was still in the mint cello.

If you require additional images - Please let me know and I will post them here.

Sincerely: Buster

Yes, it would be nice to find it in a mint set,...however, that doesn't mean it isn't a legit error.
Still looks like it has good potential to be legit.
I would have bought it in a heartbeat, even if it was in a 2 x 2! :shock:

Happy Hunting!

Struck through a small mass of metal shavings and grease.

Brian:

If you are still interested in this exact coin - Please make me a fair and reasonable offer - I didn't want to sell it at all 'cause it is a hard to find 73 Error coin. But - I am willing if I get a fair offer.

Sincerely: Buster
