Lets see some WLH die cracks and sunburst

I am wondering how tough die cracks are on WLH and would really like to see some of the sunburts varieties on WLH.
This would be educational!

    I do not have any WLH's with die cracks.... Had not thought about that before.... I am sure they are out there. Cheers, RickO

    Probably beyond sunburst:

    The 1939D almost always shows a die crack on central area of the reverse, through the eagle, though this one is more prominent than most:

    Those are nice coins.
    Maybe word hasn't spread on this variety yet.
    This is a sunburst variety.

    Have not heard of it. What date/mm is your coin. Does it appear on other date/mm's?

    1945 is the year. You need to be careful when seeking them out. Some of the die cracks are probably early stage and are barely noticeable. The one I bought is what you want.
    Like anything else watch for fakes. The cracks are not recessed into the coin. That might be a silly comment but not everyone may be aware.
    I don't want anyone to get taken for money.

    @jtlee321 Thank you, I see PCGS still does not recognize it, at least not listed on coinfacts that I see.
    Interesting.

    @Watchtower I didn't know what you meant re:Sunburst, but thanks to your post, I now do. I appreciate your education.
