Both sides of the coin, how common for a strike through?

I have a roll of these nickels that perhaps 25 coins exhibit strike throughs on one or both sides of the coin. How common, on modern coins, is it to find this issue on both sides of the same coin?
I would think it is quite unusual, unless I'm missing something.

    Certainly is unusual.... Is your roll of coins what you have assembled from collecting over a long period? Cheers, RickO

    Where grease is involved, it is scarce but not rare for both sides to be involved.

    For some reason I saved about a dozen rolls of the new Jeffersons. Don't even remember where I got them. Just sat on the shelf in the safe. Thought I'd look at one of the rolls for fun.
