    You need to visualize what a die crack is.

    It is a a crack or split in the die, which means it would result in a raised line on the struck coin.

    If the effect on your coin is depressed or impressed into the surface, it can't be a die crack.

    As mentioned, your issue here might be a lamination.

    I'll go with lamination.

    Planchet flaw or bad alloy mix common on nickels.

  • Ty yspsales I love it I have been doing it for 2 years now and have found so many different error I have collected . And the more I learn I realized I have probably let some good ones go by not having the knowledge. But I watch videos and ask a lot of questions. And learn something every day 😁
