I noticed this extra silver above the "7" in the date. I have included a regular 1879-P date Morgan slowly faded into this date for comparison (both are 1879-P).

I don't know what to call this type of error. Is it from a cracked die? What nomenclature or terminology is used to accurately and precisely describe this?

All help appreciated. Thank you.

From what I can see, I think it is a die chip, or two chips side-by-side.

It was caused by a hard hit during circulation that displaced part of the 7.

A die chip I can understand, but if it was caused by a hard hit and displacement of part of the 7, wouldn't there be some kind of a void in or near the 7?

You would think. I don't see any damage that would displace that much metal.
