Has anyone seen this before? Is this normal for these proofs?

I'm assuming that's somewhat common for a business strike, but for a proof?
The die looks like this:
Proof strike "golden" dollar coins are struck with a one step process, the collar in the press has 3 segments, each segment leave a line where they meet.
I will update if I can find a picture of how this collar die set up looks. I know i've seen it, but can't find it right now.
the seams on your proof coin are normal for proofs, there is 3 of them from where the the segments meet.
Huh, I always thought of them as die cracks. Thank you for the bit of knowledge though. I couldn't find any information on it at all. I only saw one listing on Ebay for a business strike for like 60 bucks with the same thing.
no idea what you saw on ebay, but I can go looking
Sorry, it was a proof, but this is what I was talking about.
But now I know. That will be there for a long while on Ebay.
