    FWIW I've seen this attribute called "spike head". Would this be considered in that group, or just a die break? 1984 P Spike Head Full Obv.jpg 1984 P Spike Head.jpg 1984 P Spike Head Rev.jpg

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    All "spike heads" are die breaks. The term is just a clever marketing term to describe a die break from his head to the rim. You can see a catalog of them here. Apparently, there is a group dedicated to collecting these. Of note, your example is not listed. Contact them and you might get it listed! http://cuds-on-coins.com/lincoln-cent-spike-heads-1980-1989/

    Yours looks more like a linear plating blister than a die crack.
    Based on the pictures, I'm like 99% sure that's what it is.

    I have to agree with furry. Plating issue.

    I agree with a plating issue.
