Hey all Any thoughts on this raised (die crack?)? It almost looks like the start of another wheat stalk. I included a picture of a light tin foil impression of the reverse. The last letter in ''americ'A'' looks like it was affected by the raised portion (or PMD.).

Thanks for looking.

I used photoshop to select the raised crack (as best I could), made a copy of it, and overlayed the copy on top of the right wheat stalk. I only adjusted the copy's exposure, color, and opacity, and rotated it in line with the stalk. Looks oddly similar...

Not a die crack, just damage.

Agree it's damage. The metal is pushed downward causing the raised line.

Hmmmm. Not sure I agree. I don't see the metal flow you are talking about. Not even on the tin. It is odd!

@vestigewolf it's just damage. You can see how the metal has been displaced from the divot below the "stem" to where the supposed "stem" is. This is just a combination of PMD and Pareidolia.

I'm not so sure. I am surely a novice at this and am learning more every day. But other than the scratch below the raised lines in question, I don't see any other area around the raised lines that shows a big enough divot to cause PMD damage, and it happens to match fairly well to a wheat stalk on the reverse, even the PCGS wheat reverse which matches pretty neatly as well...i always appreciate the input of course, will set the coin aside...many thanks for looking.
