Hello,
This is my first post on this site and I hope I'm in the right forum. Anyway I've got a question about a Lincoln shield penny. In Lincoln's hair at the top there is a blob of extra metal with what appears to be crack lines emanating from either side of the blob. Is this considered to be a die crack? I've included two picks showing the error with one were I've highlighted the actual error.
Thanks
Macgrimm

Not sure if it meets the criteria for "retained interior die break" but here are some examples. http://cuds-on-coins.com/lincoln-ce...r-die-break/

IMO the plating got stretched beyond its integrity.
In other words, it split.
Describe it as if there were no picture.
Picture it as if there were no description.

Thanks for your quick replays.
I guess more information might help. I purchased a full $25 box from my local bank. This error (for lack of better description right now) is not the only one I've found but rather, I picked rolls from 6 different locations in the box and each roll was the same in that there seemed to be a pattern that repeated within each roll. There were normal cents, cents with large cud's as I have provided in picture, smaller cud's in the same general area, multiple small cud's in same area and others. As I unrolled each of the 6 rolls I noticed the same repeating pattern. So far from the 6 rolls I have filled 2/3 of one plastic quarter tube with the large error type and 1-1/2 tubes of the smaller type.

If this IS caused by stretching would I have repeating issues in each roll? Would the box seem to have these errors throughout?
Are these considered collectible?
Should I send one out to be graded?
Should I just put them into circulation?
Thanks
sorry I'm such a newb

"considered collectible"= collect what you like or find interesting, I don't think there is a large field of collectors for this mint "die state" error

"have it graded"= not off this "error" alone, maybe if you feel it would receive a MS-69 or 70 grade

"put them in circulation"= keep a few large ones if you like, spend the rest

Good luck on future finds, have fun...
