can anyone here tell me. if there is some where I can find information. see the Royal Canadian Mint will repair and patch striking dies from time to time. I have just found my second American coin. that has been struck by a patched welded die. I am just wondering does anyone record these patches. I can show you patches on Canadian proof likes.

That sounds interesting and is new to me. Can you please add a pic or two of the US coin struck from a patched die?

Can't be a welded die. If the die was welded, that area would be raised on the die, the result would be an incuse area on the fields. This shows a raised area like a mark into the the die, leaving a raised area on the field of the coin. Also no one could weld that small. So it maybe a die gouge like an enhancement mark on the die, or die damage.

Another reason why they wouldn't weld a die, it would destroy the heat treated hardening and tempering of the die. Sure you could re-harden and temper the die, but the weld material, being different from the die body, would not react the same way and would almost certainly fail again almost immediately.

In addition to other reasons, I think it would be more cost-effective to just make a new die than try to repair a broken one, especially for modern mass-produced coins like Jefferson nickels.

even if they repaired a die with a weld, all of the identifiable points would be ground off, and polished.. there would be no noticeable remnants of the repair..

Doesn't seem logical. I agree with others it seems foolish for the Mint to make such "repairs". There must be another answer to these images.
