What confuses me is why would a lamination show up at the same spot on three separate planchets. hmm...
@paddyman98 would know for sure.
Welcome to CT!
Thanks for the welcome!
Your first photo shows a pre die break depression. As this gets worse it will form into an interior die break and also cracks emanating from the same area. Your other two photos are different stages of an interior die break (IDB) and what follows after the depression. It's likely there was a depression there before the full blown break came. What you have is a nice progression, of which I would keep to show how stages occur.
Cool finds @strosk!
I would have loved to have run into so many of these at one time. I had excellent luck with mint bags and doubled dies on the Homestead quarters but had to pay the premium to get them. But the bags also yielded quite a few chimney and roof die breaks also, in stages and similar to yours in the size of the chips. Congrats on these. And also welcome to Coin Talk.
I'm still waiting to run across any of the Homestead errors. I saved out one that I think has "something" just above the roof and by the pump handle. Hoping to eventually get a nice leaky bucket. I started out getting $40 in rolls at a time. Latest bank run was $400. Maybe some day I'll try bags It got addicting real quick!
