I found this in a circulated roll from a bank box of U.S. Pennies. This is one heck of a Die Crack. It ends on Lincoln's ear.

Thank you vietguy823! Don't worry, you'll find one of these eventually, since there's a good amount of these in the wild. :)

Cool find! I'm getting like Old Joe Clark. I'm starting to find these almost once a week. Found a 2015 yesterday with a nice spike coming from his noggin.

Thank you Jim and HoboNickelCarver! This one was a pretty good example. I have found Die Cracks that are longer than this, but this one is still pretty long.
