Die crack?
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:25 »
Just happened to have a look through the microscope at a 1919 penny I dug in 2017 and I think I have a coin with a die crack. It is through the date and doesn't show on the other side. I checked the photo taken when  found and the "crack" is actually visible but here is a closer shot.

A big part of detecting is being in the right place - in your head and at the site.
