    Very hard to see anything from those pics but it looks indented which would indicate scratches, not a raised crack. It also appears that the coin has numerous contact marks from circulation. Better pics will help clarify

    I agree with @Oldhoopster ... Pictures are not clear, but it looks more like a scratch.... Cheers, RickO

    Well pics aren't the best, granted, but in my limited experience, even die scratches run fairly straight. Is that not the case you've found?
    Either way I will try and get a better picture for you kind people, it's not easy being green....lol

    Scratches, by their nature, can be any shape. You might be thinking of die polish.

    That said, the folks were not suggesting a die scratch. They were suggesting a coin scratch...PMD. if it is incuse, that's what it is. If it is raised then it is not.
