Here's something you don't see very often. A very nice die crack on a 1968-S Proof quarter. It runs from basically 6 to 12 o'clock around and near the rim. I have three examples of the exact same crack from a lot of proof sets I purchased last week. Here's the pics:

    Just a point of terminology - "radial" refers to lines toward or away from the center, not the roughly concentric feature in the photos.

    Pretty neat - never saw that variety before.

    I also have one or two of these. It does not appear to be a die crack to me (especially when I look at it in hand), but it's certainly very unusual.
