Is this PMD or a really entertaining die crack?
Thanks in advance!

Might be a lamination?, is the "crack" raised or inset?.
It's an inset. not terribly deep though, but deep enough to expose non-burnished surface and start the oxidation process anyhow.
Almost as if it cracked the Planchet at striking from the top down view, I have seen some very similar before. Not sure if I might have one just about the same in the stacks somewhere. Looks familar for sure. I am thinking the one I have in mind is from about this same era...
forty years later... 1993
Dollar, that coin looks like the line is raised rather than mine which is inset. If it is raised you've got a *great* example of a die crack. I think transt4 is right about my coin, that it resulted from a split planchet. You've got a beaut, though.
I agree dollar, this is clearly a great example of a cracked die...
