Please - photos of both sides of the whole coin
looks like the crack goes thru to the back of the coin
No mint errors are present on your coin.
Thank You I have never seen a penny like this that is actually cracked . Thinking maybe the planchet was defective . Still learning over here
Check with the error experts. @Fred Weinberg; @mikediamond; @paddyman98; et al.
Thank You Thomas
Looks like a common worn die strike. It will deform the struck blank planchet.
Thank You paddyman . so a die strike can cause a crack like the one seen in my first picture ?
It's really not a crack but a ridge that is formed do to a deteriorated die.
Thanks again paddyman you have been a lot of help
