I recently picked up a slabbed LMC and looking it over it has a pretty large die crack on the reverse. I know die cracks have no value on regular coins, but this is a proof. I was going to not pick it up but the cost was minimal. I'll post pictures later today.

So the question is "Do die cracks have any extra value on proof coins?"

I'm not sure but I'm looking forward to the images of your proof.

An eye-catching die crack on a proof might tempt someone into paying a modest premium. In my mind it's gotta be quite noticeable/striking.

The Coin. The crack is on the reverse, but the observe also has a small cud/crack.

That is not a die crack. That is a linear plating bubble.

Sad that the mint let a proof coin like that make it into the set. Sadder that a respected TPG gave it a 69.

Only cost me $2, I figured I would keep it whenever I need to tell someone to buy the coin and not the slab
