Are you talking about the lines above 'U' 'R' and across the L? are they recessed or above the coin surface?

Raised lines are likely die cracks.

I couldn't guess the value. You could check the bay and see if any have sold.

I dunno, they look too straight and uniform to be die cracks, I would say that they're die scratches/gouges.

after more examination the lines are concave. How could this be PMD if the gauge seems to go under the L?

here is a new pic at a different angle.......



here is one of the line going under the L........

They look more like die scratches than die cracks to me.

Raised on the coin usually indicates a die issue.

I hate when that happens!

If it really is Under the L then I would agree with Indian1 - that the damage may have happened before the coin was struck.

But it looks like it the damage may have occurred a little above the bottom of the L and the split continued under the L after impact. But I'm guessing. It really depends upon what photo I look at.

I've had coins with similar-looking PMD -- when I thought it was a die crack or gouge but it wasn't --makes my eyes hurt after awhile. LOL
