    Looks kind of like a strike through, but need clearer pics. Is it incuse or not? It might be the plastic sleeve.

  • No it's not plastic sleeve...

    My vision must be deteriorating because I can't tell much of anything with the photos.

    The pictures are a tad blurry... however, it does look like a struck through...interesting anomaly on a proof coin. Try to post some better pictures and we may be able to give more information. Cheers, RickO

    Looks like a strike-thru, based on the photos...

    Very interesting visual effect of a strike-through. Not sure the market for something like this, but it does look like a horn and I'm sure someone would pay a premium for it.

    Could be a struck thru, as mentioned.

    Could also be a 'hit' - tough to tell from
    the photos.
