Found what appears to be a die crack at the back of Lincoln head. Always get confused between die crack and die break...

If I may offer a contrarian view, I'd like to propose that this is just PMD. It looks to me like there are several areas of scraping on Lincoln's head and this ridge of metal is at the end of one of these scrapes. If it was a lamination, then I would have expected it to wesr down *faster* than the surounding, lower details, such as Lincoln's hair.

Thoughts?

After reading the other thread, it seems to point at PMD.

Post a few more pictures Antmark, and I think we can give you a definitive answer. Close-ups of the areas in question and a whole shot of both sides.

It looks like a lamination issue. The metal is rolled up on the left side of the head area. Looks like the right side of the lamination it has peeled and came off. The lines on that area makes me think it was scraped off. (striation lines)

Other members pointed out the metal being scrapped and that's what it kinda looks like. Here are more images:

I'm really liking all the feedback..I started out thinking it was a die crack and then went to lamination - to PMD - back to lamination....
