Post mint? Damaged planchette? Figment of my imagination?

The rim at 7 o'clock- 10 o'clock is interesting.
Dawn and a soft brush would not be the way to go, but since it is
a face value coin it doesn't really matter.
No but it's been cleaned and while Die cracks are nice there's no real money in common ones.
That’s what I was asking about. The crack
Now I understand what you are asking. If you read what you wrote it was not descriptive enough to communicate to other members what you are seeing. In the future be more specific and you'll get better answers. Something like, What is that line just to the right of the E in LIBERTY? It starts at the rim and it runs along the top of Kennedy's head, goes into his hair and cuts back up to the rim on the left side of the B in LIBERTY.
Just trying to be helpful. You have the coin. We have photos. You must tell us what you see and ask clear questions in order to get honest answers.
Imho, it looks like a die crack running from 10:00-2:00 on the
Obverse side. You can faintly see it run straight onto the rim past the B.
@Chip Kirkpatrick - if you're using a filter - to make the coin look better - please don't it can hide detail. The pic of the obverse looks normal.
In the future Chip do not clean any coins the way you did. Even if the coin isn't note worthy it is a bad practice.
Acetone and possibly a que tip roll the que tip.
As already said a possible retained cud.
It depends if the crack runs through the rim at both ends.
It's a stain - both of them, at the top and
at the right of the obv.
One photo (the 5th) looks like a die crack, but
the others show a stain or ? (possible clear glue?)
That 5th photo looks like a crack due to the angle
and lighting. It is not a die crack, imo.
Both of those discolored areas occurred on the
coin after it was in circulation. Not an error
Hence the reason I asked for an acetone soak which would remove a thick edge if glue or build up.
There is something raised and the B and rim look affected.
Most likely it is just me.
