Hi

Would like to get some thoughts again on what is happening with this 1920 penny. I was thinking this might be a gouge, scrap or some other kind of mechanical damage but it seems too irregular for that. I would have expected straighter lines. If this an example of a die crack running from the wheat ear to the rim over the B in Pluribus?

Thanks in avance again, Eric

Going by that photo, a lamination?

A wider view on the coin might show us more. It could be a struck through debris, over even a lamination. But a wider view might help us, see what your are seeing?

Agree, looks more like a lamination issue.

Lamination likely. Better, sharp, natural color photos would help.

Hi

Here is a wider view image of the penny. I am not sure what to do about the focus, it seems to lose a lot when I run through the image optimizer.

Regards, Eric

Looks more like a lamination, peel/attached on the reverse. Hard to tell from images yet though.
