Going through my 43s and found this one that appears to have a large die crack on the obverse. Would this be considered a rim to rim die crack? This novice would love to hear your thoughts :)

From your photos, this just looks like a scratch across the face of the obverse. Could you please show us a close-up of this mark so we can see if it is a crack? Thanks

Very good point @merc. I can't tell from the current pics either, but it might be a scratch on the coin rather than a die crack.

Well the area is raised. Note how the zinc was rubbed off the affected areas and the other high points on the face. But a closer view might help A die crack will be irregular in shape. If it straight if maybe be an illusion because of the zinc coating. This one may have been re-processed? That might be the issue?
