Nice pick up. the "crack" was clear on the photo in the listing. Is this your first listing?
I can't believe the seller didn't notice it! How? It was so visible and obvious. Oh well. You got a great deal for it.
We actually had e-mail correspondence over the "crack." To him it wasn't a big deal because he sees these kinds of things all the time on steelies. So this is why he didn't even bother to mention this detail in the listing. But I picked up on it right away. I thought it was cool to have such a prominent error on a bright, lustrous MS coin. This coin has been well cared for since 1943! I appreciate all the comments, guys. I LOVE this hobby!
