For interesting die cracks on coins as well as primarily CUDs try http://cuds-on-coins.com/
silviosi: If you look a database of this you will never find. die crack happened, do has big premium? NO.
Example: You offer me to buy a coin an you say is a die crack. My response will be : So what? No premium.
100% Completely and respectfully disagree. As to the database See my answer above, that website has a very extensive listing of die cracks on coins from all over the world. A good die crack error on the right coin can bring a tremendous premium. I personaly have paid upwards of 5 times bid or more for a particular die crack or cud coin. Many of us collect them and if you watch on eBay in certain series the coins with die cracks, cuds, and other die errors often sell for a large premium. In fact over the past year I was out bid at two major auctions on coins due to competition against another bidder over a coin at a large premium over a simple die crack.
Here is a small example, if you were to pass on buying this coin, an 1869 US Two Cent Piece
, because of the die crack at the date, then you passed up on a $100+ premium in Very Good grade and up to $1000+ in Mint State condition. I'd say that is worth not only knowing about but to actively look for them. I just purchased a PCGS
slabbed VG8 for $110.00 not long ago.
Or how about one of these Morgan dollars
, with a large die crack?
That is the Scarface 1888-O Morgan dollar VAM
1B3 and that very specimen without the crack would sell for around $65.00 to $85.00, however, because of the die crack, this exact coin (in the photograph I uploaded), sold at Heritage
Signature Auction, held in Chicago on August 16, 2015 this 1888-O Morgan dollar
was Lot #4188, and it sold for $18,800.00 - all because there was a very interesting die crack, and only for that reason. No premium huh?
Are there minor die cracks that won't bring a premium? Absolutely, however I would venture to say more than half of all the collectors enjoy collecting them and find them interesting. It's just wrong to say there is no interest nor that they don't bring any premium value to a coin with one.
