I found this nickel in a roll hunt. After viewing it with a microscope I noticed that on the bottom right portion of the building is connected to the rim. Would this be a type of die chip?

I'd call it a die crack.

I'm team die crack for this one too. Those building corners are areas of high stress on the die and prone to crack formation.

I'm with Dearborn on this, I agree it's probably a die gouge. Looks too straight for a chip.

Please no screen shots. They are too pixelated. Zoom in with your camera or a memory card. Thanks.

Not a die chip. Die crack or gouge. Being such a short run, it could be a die crack, cracks are most times not straight.

Agree it's not a die chip. Leaves die crack or gouge as the possibilities. I don't see how we could tell for sure, but it does not really matter. There is little to no numismatic premium for such an example.
