Just looking through 1995 cents tonight and ran into the below coin. The die crack runs all the way down to Lincoln's lips. Just sharing.

Well that is cool - looks like the one posted by"Errors and varietys" yesterday
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

Working on Whitman Large Cent date set album 1793-1857 (57 holes filled of 64 total) now come the "toughies" - yikes!

NICE die crack.
My best guess would be to call the piece in the middle a "retained inclusion".
But strictly a guess.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

That's an awesome coin! Not convinced about it being a RIDB, that would have to show either horizontal or vertical movement to prove it's actually a break. It is an an awesome coin though.

Very nice find! It looks very similar to my example that I posted yesterday.

The die break in the middle is raised above the level of the hair.

I can tell from your top view pic that there is no horizontal movement. If you can post a semi-side side view pic we could check a little closer for vertical movement, but I'm fairly sure it would be apparent in the pic already supplied. It's all uneven surfaces in that area even on a normal coin.

I can clearly tell by looking at it through a stereo microscope that the area is raised as stated before. If it is not raised then why does the top edge reflect light and bottom create a shadow?

I agree, it looks raised. That photo shows it much better.
