This is an iteresting split on the Platypus's eye.
I don't think it is PMD as it has little bits connect one side to the other all the way up the split.

Your thoughts ?

A platypus by any other name would still be strange.

Yeah, I can't say apple, hard to make a call on this one.
Can you get a nice clear close-up of the full length of the split?

Hope this is good enough but I doubt it,have to wait until the sun is shining to get pics like those ones ^^^^ I put up earlier.



You can see how all the little bits join across though.

I took those pics in the shade but really bright daylight with my camera ( FujiFilm S3200 X 24 optical zoom ) with the chrome setting on & macro as well.
Really it is a point & shot camera but the settings take a bit of working out.

Sorry to say, I'm still none the wiser.

I really can't say what it is or how it might have happened.

I am sort of inclined towards PMD, but in no way certain of it.

Better keep it though, just in case it turns out to be a rarity.

As for the platypus (I'm not going to try to spell it's scientific name), that's one nasty looking scar. Pub brawl with broken glass? darn those hero platypusses.

I'd have to agree with bellyflorin with:

wire/string on the die

It's not as common as it once was. I remember seeing many for Penny's & Halfpennies.
