Question on this 1802 Draped Bust Large Cent.

Is this a die crack or what on this 1802 Large Cent? I've been told it was not, but can't imagine what else it could be. I appreciate any opinions.

    Looks like a die crack from the photo. I just flipped through Breen and see no mention.

    Smitten with DBLCs.

    That's the reason, I posted it. I can't find a single die pair with that die crack. The NC-1 has a die crack that originates from the same place, but is nothing like this one as it goes down thru the head and neck and out the lower rim. I've utilized 4 books and none show this die state progression. Doesn't mean anything as it doesn't change the die pair.

    Not sure but do see verdigris on the high points of the obverse.
