    Interesting.. I'm thinking Lamination error.
    So planchet issue. A Die Crack would be raised.

    Just google, Cracked scull error on 1955 Lincoln cent. Quite common.

    Looks like one to me.

    Not that I think mine is anything special, but that search pulls up all sorts of errors-- all different but yes, most on his head. Lincoln's head taking up about 1/4 of the real estate on that coin, it only stands to reason that many errors would be there, right?

    The top (or left) part of the head is raised, at the crack. Is that what you mean? Or would the entire area be raised? Thanks---

    No.. Raised meaning when the Die strikes the blank planchet the metal flows into the Crack and it would be raised.
    Don't worry.. You have a planchet error. The lamination raises of the surface.
    I would rather have a Lamination Mint than a Die Crack. Enjoy it!

    That is a very nice lamination error. A definite keeper. Enjoy it.
