Anyone else out there collect these? Although there are tons of little die cracks all over this series, major ones are a bit scarcer, but I find some of them quite fascinating. Some cracks go right through (into) the devices and fields.

Here are a strong 1944.

This one is a retained broken obverse die. The coin is from 1940.

Cleaning up my desk, and found another one. This one is more like what I would expect from a radial failure. Several die cracks from the effigy of the King to the rim.







The reverse, is a much newer die, with no cracks.

This 1940 is pretty faint, but is long going almost rim to rim. I'd love to see one of these in a later die state.
