I'm thinking that this is a very small rim to rim Lamination. A Die Crack wouldn't have a rough and flaky texture. A Die Crack would be raised.

Are you sure that this isn't a very small rim to rim Lamination error? I would like other members to chip in, to see what they think. We won't know for sure what it is, until later.

I'm casting my vote with E&V on this one. It's flaky appearance does that for me.

I'm not exactly sure what it is
- but heres my thoughts,
i think it is too straight to be a die crack.
its almost a perfectly straight line, like someone scratched it.

but then it does have the slight appearance of a lamination

A straight line surface abrasion was my first thought as well. That said, images may be misleading my perception a bit. Thanks, Doug.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.

IMO it's a scratch.
Some pics with the lighting from different angles would help me make up my mind.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Die cracks can be straight if they are from a sudden failure. In this case I have my doubts to it being a die crack. It just seems to be too much of a coincidence that the O the N the T and wheat all seem to show depressions like damage where ever the line crosses them. A lamination might show that but to have a depression every place where a crack crosses a raised feature seems too much to believe.

Thanks to all masters for chime in. When you have a coin on your hand you would see. Pictures sometimes is make you confuse for all the lighting angles. It hard to believe a die crack going straight like that. I will look over it again and get a better pics. Thanks again guys

It's certainly not a die crack. It is either a scratch or very minor lamination due to how weak the line is

Looks like a small lamination - they can be raised like die cracks too.

Looks like a rim to rim lamination. The edge is peeling a bit and shows all across the coin. Very little premium for this. Most of the time they break a sale as they are not a great coin to a true coin collector. To an error collector they are fairly common. So a small premium if any.
