Hello All, new to all this, is this considered a die crack, if so then I found my first one, if not then what would it be classified as?
Thanks for all your help

Not a die crack, a die crack would be raised.
Looks like a minor lamination problem.
Don't argue with an idiot, he will beat you with experience.

Looks like a lamination to me also.

Agree, lamination.
I prefer to collect Delamination's. They tell me what is actually happening, die cracks tell me what is going to happen.

Dan,

I agree that delaminations are interesting and certainly more variation potential. Has anyone that collects LAMs noticed a date trend?

On the other hand, it's always a little cool when someone posts a die-crack coin that is the exact same as one you have in your own box - especially something as recognizable as a "spiked head", for example.

- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

thanks everyone, so what does a guy do with a coin with these kind of issues? back into circulation or hold on to it? can a lamination issue have any value?

thanks again for the lesson, back to the hunt
