Going through some of the coins I was given. I ran across this little oddity. It is a small raised area just below the steps. I have looked at lot of coins over the years and never seen a die chip here.

Die chips can occur anywhere.

Yes they can it just seems like an odd place on the die is all. I thought it was interesting and was sharing.

I agree die chip seems unlikely based on location. On that flat field there is no edge, corner, or other stress riser for a chip to start. Maybe struck from a damaged die?

@spence that is what I thought as well it just seems like a strange place for this to happen almost the center of the die(anvil) on a flat area.
