Been having fun with my new USB microscope. Found what seems to be a few cracks on the rear of this one. The first one is a lightning strike through the "D" of UNITED. The other goes from the bottom of the Lincoln Memorial to the other side.

These Die Cracks are a very common occurrence on the 1983 LMC's. No premium for this, but they can be fun to collect.

Nice work with your pics and I agree that this cent has a few die cracks at these sharp corners of the design (i.e. stress risers).
