Thanks! Thought so just wanted to get a sanity check.
A Die Crack would be on the Die. When the Die strikes the Blank Planchet the metal will
flow into the Crack or Break then appear raised above the field.
It doesn't crack the planchet with an incused into the field issue.
It's here forever
My shame is forever....
It's OK, we've all made posts like that!
Did you find that decent 1912 V nickel CRH.
Gavin, get a grip on yourself. You didn't know what a crack looks like. It's not the end of the world.
It is OK, we all where a bit ignorant when we first started. But not to worry, many members here will be more than happy to tell you when you are wrong. It will be a common theme when you first start out. Meow has learned a lot here since joining a few years ago.
I did! I was pretty excited about that one
No worries...we generally don't mind looking at damage which is "interesting"
As paddyman mentioned, the interesting dynamic with a "die crack" is that the metal flows into the crack, thereby leaving a "raised" bit of metal on the coin. Since your specimen seems (to me) to exhibit the raised metal...then yes, nice find!
Damage... someone probably took a knife or something like that to it
