CoinMom4 shows a coin that appears to represent an earlier stage in the formation of the die chip. Neat!

I, too, found one of these coins, but I didn't notice this thread at the time: http://goccf.com/t/349420

Steve Bernatowicz, whom I cite in both of my Coin World articles, suggests that the circular crack (and subsequent die chip) are both due to hubbing-induced brittle failure. The blank working die wasn't sufficiently annealed. As the hub pressed down upon the tip of the working die's cone-shaped face, a small circular crack developed. This led to worsening brittle failure as the press run proceeded. While speculative, it is certainly plausible and accounts for the perfect centering and near-perfect circularity of the defect.

Interesting die failure with resulting chip.

Just seeing this thread and noticed the incomplete "circle" on Coinmom's image as well.

(Another reason to like Mike, extremely knowledgeable and human. Thank you.)

Not intending to be OCD...but isn't a die chip's size categorized as 1mm or less, a small die break 1 to 3mm, and a large die break >3mm? What size do you determine to be of Washington's donut "die chip?"

It's entirely arbitrary what criteria one uses to distinguish between various forms of interior die breaks. Alan Herbert's criteria (which I believe you are citing) are just as arbitrary as anyone else's. I use a criterion of 4 square millimeters to distinguish between die chips and larger interior die breaks. But that's simply for my use and for anyone who chooses to adopt it.
