March 1999 "Retained Grease" Strike Through

Post by Enyaw » Wed Mar 15, 2023 3:29 pm

I found this coin in the approx. middle of an original mint roll. Is it possible for the grease to remain on the coin of a struck through grease feature?
In photo 4 you can see the struck through grease character on the coin where some of the grease is gone (red arrows).

A really nice coin struck through grease.

And yes Grease can remain there.
Old and dirt grease can be quite sticky.
