Has anyone seen this before on this penny?? Or s
If it is incuse then it might be a struck through of some type of foreign particle/wire.
If it is raised it might be a die crack.
Note: There maybe a part of it sticking up above the curve of the R.
Nice pics, too!
It looks like a tooling mark on the die

Thanks I’ve been working on taking better pictures. The lighting helps a lot. Plus change the batteries in my portable microscope. That helped as well. I will put this in a 2x2.
Not a die break for sure. They are not smooth.
Next, anytime you have something as this inside a letter, under magnification, take a splinter of wood and see if you can move it. If it does not move, I'm with the mark on the die guys.
Well if there’s this one. It’s got to be another one made or thousands!
Can’t be just only one!!!
Cool looking mark. Definitely a keeper.
