These are small raised irregular blobs of metal found usually at the design stress points. They are most often found in the recessed areas of certain letters or numbers (e.g.; B & R of LIBERTY and the 9 & 5 of the date). This is because the recessed areas of the letters and numbers on the coin are raised areas on the die, which look like little islands. It does not take much stress before these raised pieces of the die start to chip and break off, leaving a raised area on the coin where a recessed area is expected. 1918-S 1c w/die chips in Mint mark.

Thanks for looking everybody:thumb:
thank you for your help .
Some times it takes time for the right person to read your posting. Not that I'm the right person but I will try to answer your question as best I can.
First: a Die Chip is a small, irregular cavity on the die resulting from a small chip. This results in a small raised area on the coin.
A Die Gouge ia s raised area on the die that is the result of damage caused by a gouging action from engravers tools, ejection mechanisms, awls, or anything that results in a gouge in a die. This will also result in a raised area on the coin.

Thank you so much for that information but my question is what is a die arrow. I read that in coin world and it looks like my coin. I forget what issue I red that in maybe two years ago .I was confussed when i red that information and the name who wrote it was I forget.
Well thank you anyway everybody is so nice here i like this coin place.
Sorry, but I'm not famillar with the term DIE ARROW. Not that there is not such a term but I do not know it. I have look at all of the terms and definitions that I have and I can not find it.
Maybe someone will know the term and let you know or if you can find the article that might help.
This looks like a die crack.
I found the information on the web my coin proof coin that is it's called a spiked head why did they refere it to a die arrow in coin world that's stuped to confuss eveybody.Well maybe they didn't kniow what they were talkng about whoever wrote the colume
Thank all of you so much for trying to help me anyway
Do you have a link to that article? Strange term, I agree with whoever said it sounded like an eBay selling term. I can understand your confusion. If I am seeing your coin correctly, it looks like a die crack. I don't collect Kennedy proofs so I am not sure how common or uncommon a crack like that would be - I doubt there is any additional premium either way. Regardless, it is a nice photo.
