Could this be a strike through error?

#1 Unread post by Jimez1 »

The coin to the left is a 1991 Philadelphia minted penny it looks as though it has a grease strike error. the one after the nine is faded. I included the penny to the right to show what the penny to the left should look like. I would just like to know if others feel this is a mint error. I did check the rim Close to the 91 and it shows only normal signs of wear.

Grease filled dies are not considered "mint errors" since they were simply a product of polishing the dies to extend die life. They can happen anywhere on the coins and need to obliterate a lot of the details before any premium is attached to them.

Sometimes I have seen grease filled strikes called "mint events," b/c although it happens at the mint, it was a human who accidentally put the grease into the die. The die itself was not improperly made.
