Before I get to the pics, I did look at Doubledie.com and saw nothing related. My gut feeling is that this is just strategically placed PMD. I know the lettering is not doubled - my only concern is the bay the statue sits in. I'll shut up and see if you guys see what I see. Thanks in advance!

A die crack, split plate doubling and just some type of stain from a unkown environmental damage factor.

Thanks Errers. So that is not column doubling in the statue bay, correct?

I don't think it is.

It might be a die scratch. But I can't tell from the images provided if it extends above or below the building. But a die scratch would last longer on a confined area, than on open fields areas.

There is a variety with a doubled roof in the statue bay but it is on a 2004 or 2005. The pictures look like a DD column.

I don't care much one way or the other, but that line is super straight. If it's not listed I have no premium but I guess I'll hang on to it. Costs me 1 cent to keep it. I seriously doubt it qualifies as an error or it would have been discovered by now. Something happened in that bay! Thanks all for your comments!

Oh and I do appreciate the pro's weighing in. Coop, Errers, and jpgrajek. I've learned so much reading other threads from you guys.

I thought so too. seems a bit too perfect to be zinc bubbles or such. Oh well, off to the next coin! :)

I'm learning so forgive me. Would a die scratch or crack align so perfectly with the column? I'm really ready to toss this cent into the cull bin but come on - that line lines up perfectly.

I am asking to be educated, not to be impudent. Even if this were an error it would be worth a buck or so? I don't care about that.

That's not part of the intended 3-D effect?

Well keep in mind that on the die, the raised areas are incuse into the die. The fields are the outside of the die. The fields also include the bays raised above the incuse columns. So if sandpaper or a wire brush were used on the bay areas (which are raised on the die) the columns could create a straighter line. Most of the time it doesn't. But I could see how it could happen that way.
On the examples of extra column lines, more than a single line is seen and they are usually on the central parts of the bays put there by the hub. Not a polishing issue. To me the line looks very thin, like a die scratch. Note the false columns on the two surrounding bays. These are much wider than a scratch.

I'm seeing the same thing as the OP. I hate to be contrary guys but this is one I would definitely send in to Wexler. There are some nice doubled columns that have been found in the early 90's.
(It may not be a WDDR but someone has to take a chance and be the first to submit a discovery piece.)

EDIT: In the OP's second image, there also seems to be a raised faint line above the right planter as well.
