1990 1/4 oz $10 American Gold Eagle Obverse Struck Thru Mint Error NGC MS 69
The American Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion specimen of the United States of America. First introduced by the United States Mint in 1986 featuring the iconic rendition of the full-length figure Lady Liberty with flowing hair on the obverse and a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatch-lings on the reverse making it one of the most recognizable gold bullion coins in the world.
The strike through is located on the obverse underneath the olive branch held in Liberty's hand. A strike through error is when some sort of foreign object or substance on either the die, or the planchet (coin blank), somehow got between them during the striking of the coin, and it left an impression on the coin. Thus, the coin was "struck through" this object/substance, which looks to be a piece of metal.
