    I was wondering if the indicated anomaly is a die crack?

    The lighting is coming from straight overhead and from 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock so the shadow is on the south side indicating a raised anomaly.

    You talking about the numeral 5?
    Looks like a die deterioration issue.

    I see a Die Break.. Known as a Die Chip on the Mint Mark

    Thanks Paddy... See next post. I had a user head-space and timing issue with my posting.

    Yes, the raised area just south of the numeral 5 is what I noticed. Okay, and that is why the raised area seems to flow with the numeral... because it is part of the die process and the area of the die is worn?

    Which portion of the mint mark has the Die Chip? My novice eye doesn't see it.

    Okay... Would have never known that. Thanks.

    So the coin is just a curiosity/interesting? A good find? I'm gonna keep it because it is my first such coin but just want to know.

    Again, thanks.

    There's a die chip inside the mintmark but that under undervthe date is just a worn die.
