    I can't seem to tell if this is a die crack or hair/thread that got struck through.

    Any ideas? Either way, after like 20 rolls, I've finally found something that wasn't just blisters so no matter what it is, I am quite happy :smuggrin:

    That's the problem, I can't tell if it's raised or sunk. :hilarious: It's just so thin, but visible

    Try using a piece of paper and a pencil and lightly use the pencil over the paper on the coin. This has worked for me in the past. Just a thought.

    lol. That's exactly what I did before posting. It's just such a faint line. Because it's so faint I am almost thinking its a strike through because of how connected it is.

    I would think if it was a die crack, it would be raised much higher considering how visible it is. The more I look at it, I believe it is sunk which is allowing the light to reflect off of both sides.

    I don't know... still new to this and first one I've come across like this.

    I would say it is a Struck Through Coin, Die Cracks rarely make such a sharp turn and change direction, and it seems to keep a consistent width with no tapering at the ends.

    Looks incused to me. Minor strike through.

    That would be a weird spot and shape for a Die Break.
