    Hey guys,
    This is my 2nd error ever (and 2nd found in february). Just making sure on here that it is what i think it is. Die crack guys? Looks like it runs from before the U to the E. How rare and whats the value?

    P.S. It is a bicentennial Ike

    Very Nice Crack!

    Now your challenge is to find that crack or its early version on an MS coin.

    Die cracks can be progressive such as this:

    That's a good one. I like die cracks.

    From what I understand there is little if no value added. You may get a little more from someone who specifically collects die cracks, but they are so easy to find most people won't pay a premium for them unless they are stunning/awesome. I could be wrong, though.

    But they are fun to collect!

    Very COOL find! Congrats on finding your error on an IKE! WOW!

    I bet Stewart and others from the Post and Ike thread would like to see this thread too.

    I have never been under the impression that IKE Die cracks were all that common.

    North49Guy,
    Nice find:thumb:
    Ike Die Cracks are far and few between
    It was easier for me to find my first 1971-D RDV-006 (Friendly Eagle Variety)
    Than it was my first Ike with a die crack.

    Lee,
    Is that an "OH NO" I see you have there in the last two pictures
    I still have not found one yet:headbang:

    My bad. I guess I was referring to die cracks in general.
