NGC G$50 1998 Gold 1 Oz. Eagle Large Strike Thru Obverse MS-69

1998 gold American Eagle with a large strike thru on the obverse, with the struck thru area covering the face of Ms.Liberty and other design elements. Well placed strike thru, and a high grade coin.

The strike thru is almost certainly from a piece of plastic, since examples with retained plastic are known as well.
