    Hi everybody I was looking through my wheat pennies I sorted them by decades and started to go through the 1930s when I came across this. I believe it's a die crack and a pretty good one at that. I'm looking to get this confirmed also I've been wrong in my judgments before but you people have corrected me thanks for a great site IMG_20210429_091430549~2.jpg IMG_20210507_173712790~2.jpg IMG_20210507_173813703~2.jpg IMG_20210429_091430549~2.jpg IMG_20210507_173813703~2.jpg IMG_20210429_091430549~2.jpg

    Actually it might be a lamination rather than a crack.

    Strange how you can't see the lamination in the first pic... o_O It must be a resolution thing...

    Although there seems a white spot in front of his forehead on the second pic that doesn't seem to be in the first... o_O

    That is the strangest camera I have ever seen. You aim it at one coin, and it takes a photo of the coin immediately above it.

    Not a die crack at all but it is a crack from a lamination. Nice find.

    One photo show a slight lamination, but not in the others. Are all of the pictures of the same coin?

    It's a lamination, you can see the overhang. Cracks usually come off the rim, too, that's true.
