Please help me? I f you would let me know if this is a die crack? Also what it is if not a die crack? So I know what to call it. Also the horizontal line from the"T" in (Cent) would that be considered doubling? Thankyou

I'm not sure, but it looks like platting bubbles. If it's just a bubble, it may flex under pressure from a wooden toothpick. It really seems too wide and smooth for a die crack.

Let's see what the real experts say.

Thank you, Its a well circulated coin, so I don't mind trying that. I use my daily change as lerning tools. It would be wonderful to find something unique or valuable, but unexpected to say the least. I think I should wait for all the input before attempting anything first. I dont trust me. Lol

I think it's just a very well placed nearly Linear Plating Bubble.

So is that when the mix the metals to make the planchets or a coating that is put on the coin? Is this type of damage
concidered an error or PMD? I apologize for all the questions, but I am truly curious. Not only that, also the more I know the less of a fool I make of myself.

Die damage, but not a die crack.
Something got caught in the striking chamber that damaged the die.
Once damage is done to a die the result shows up on coins struck by that die.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

It is a linear trail gas bubble. When the blank gets plated,debris and oils can get trapped between the zinc core and the copper plating.
