    Found this morning, I don't find a lot with a die crack off the date like this one. 1983cropb.jpg 1983fullobv.jpg 1983fullrev.jpg

    So straight? Maybe a linear plating blister?

    Arrrg.. I don't have my reading glasses today :(

    I see that it continues slightly to the right of the number 3. Interesting. Pre-Cud maybe?

    That would be only if it continued over the rim at 3 o clock right?
    Doesn't match any of the 84 cuds for 1983.

    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    Strike thought....but die cracks can be 180 degrees straight...i have a h 10 with a bisecting die crack that a ruler couldn't draw a straighter line.

    That’s a plating blister. I’ve never seen a die crack that straight for that long.

    I just took another image at a better angle. it's what makes me think it's a die crack and not a blister. Maybe it was a blister that collapsed? 1983cropc.jpg

    It looks like it goes rim-rim. Die crack.

    This photo makes me more convinced that’s it’s a blister. I wouldn’t try to pop it as it’s a nice one, worthy of a 2 x 2.

    Hi all - just saw this thread

    Last photo shows it's a die crack,
    not a linear plating blister.

    Something or other. We call them blinkers, BTW. Some horses run better when their peripheral vision is obscured. Me, I don't get distracted by the crowd. :)

    But that said, that's a crack if there ever was one.

    I’m speechless, which is a good thing at times. Congratulations to the OP on finding this.

    I’m not so proud do I can admit I’ve been wrong in the past, I’m wrong now and I’m sure I’ll be wrong in the future.

    Believe me when I tell you this, I've had that same feeling, myself. More times than I like to admit, actually. :)

    Much better second photo close-up post. I was going to say a die crack, but Fred beat me to it.

    No doubt that it is a die crack, thanks for the better and convincing photo.
