FG is plainly visible and it is MD not a doubled die reverse. The die crack you speak of looks more like die scratches which is all over the reverse of your coin.

John is correct on all accounts for sure. Even if the FG was fully gone, it wouldn't be special. It would just be a simple slightly Grease Filled Die.

Or the FG was polished off. Note the weakened roof lines. Just a spender.

It may be a "Struck Through" error. Although Grease Filled Dies are somewhat common, it is something worth keeping. The Kansas 25c that has the filled "T" reads "In God We rust" indeed has value for collectors judging by the eBay prices. However, I pulled an 88 cent I have with no FG, and believe it an abraded die. The scratches on mine show no evidence of a strike through. I cannot tell from your pics, but suggest filing it for future. If you happen to find another, send the best one in to an expert.

Not a struck through error. Whether it is worth keeping is up to you. If you are a new collector, then sure, keep it.

westnlas, please make a topic on it rather than speaking of it on another topic.
