thanks for the info
Just click on the line that says "23S sort by breaks" and match it up.
This should be pretty easy. you can then go to the VAM specified and match other die markers. Try it you may have fun.
the top die crack runs through the INTED in United then drops down through the RIBSU in PLURIBUS and then goes through the head of the eagle and out the lower beak part and touches the N in UNUM
the lower die crack runs from the tip of the tailfeathers all the way to the lower olive branch
this die for this coin was not in the best of shape
What did the mint do on these, keep stamping them out until the die breaks or eventually someone decides they look defective and puts in a new die?
Yeah, something like that. They try to get as much mileage out of them as they can.
