2020 5 Cents struck through grease error?

Post by Rezo » Tue Sep 27, 2022 7:37 pm

Got an unopened box from the royal mint for 2020 nickels and was wondering If this is a grease error or not as a few of the coins have the same error in the same spot

Looks like it is struck through grease or grit.

But could other coins get the same mark? As I found 2 with identical marks

Yes they can. Until the grease works it way out of the die, every strike will show the indentation.
