I agree with you, it is not an easy task to capture a die crack, need to tame your lighting you need just a right angle to shoot it.

That is called channeling. If happened on the dies back then to strengthen the design outline.

Happened on coins in that era. Good read though. As the dies were polished several times, then that engrave mark disappeared off the die. You just seeing what is left. No premium.
