These two 1924 pennies must have been minted very close together. Same die cracks in same areas. At first I thought I had checked the same coin twice. Does that make their variety more valuable as a pair? If only coins could talk ....

Maybe depend on type and the buyer. It might be hard to find that error in first place so a pair of them might go for slightly more if they show different stages or cracking.

Images please :)

I notice that there is a softer impression under TH on the reverse in identical positions on both coins.
These coins look like identical TWINS.

I looked, and found quite a few on the web. 2 places referred to this crack as

1P1924CRACK-07C, from where, I don't know.

yeah early pennies and half pennies, sixpence and threepence die cracks are quite common, with pennies being the most common probably due to die changes and experimentation. However that's not to say they don't have premium especially in higher grades, compare to decimal coins they are very easily found, since checking was done by humans and they didn't care that much in those days, there might have been crack or two.
