The coherent [Formula Presented] reaction was measured at [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] for two values of the virtual photon polarization, ε, allowing the separation of longitudinal and transverse cross sections. The results from the coherent process on [Formula Presented] were compared to [Formula Presented] data taken at the same kinematics. This marks the first direct comparison of these processes. At these kinematics [Formula Presented] pion rescattering from the spectator nucleons in the [Formula Presented] process is expected to be small, simplifying the comparison to [Formula Presented] production from the free proton.
