*** Edited by Staff to clarify topic title. Titles are important! ***

Was looking through a roll of quarters and found this 1997 P with what appear to be die cracks/lLDS. On the OBV, one starts at the rim, through the top upper left corner of the 'R', just under the lower right corner of the 'E'.
On the RV, one begins on the right side of 'U' of 'United', and ends on the edge of the left wing

(Tales from a novice.) I was examining coins for the neighbor last night and came across one that appeared to be very old and of Arabic/Asian origin. Was really excited to find it. After Googling images for a little over an hour, I finally found a match. Was and arcade coin for Aladdin's Castle.

I agree that you have a nice die crack. We see those tokens periodically here on CCF--use the search function to see more examples.
