Looking for confirmation. Looks like all 4 corners of the Lincoln memorial have cracks?

Definitely looks like die cracks on the corners from your pics. Pretty cool but unless you have very dramatic die cracks there is usually not a premium. Just my HO.......

Thank you for letting me know. I thought it was neat but I have trouble determining whats damage and what is not. I'll have to check out some dramatic ones.

Four corners die cracks, neat. These are errors, not damage, but not much collectible unless they start to meet up. If a crack comes off one corner, goes up the column and ends at the other corner crack back to the rim, then you've got something. Minor die cracks are common, and 1983 has them even more than most years, but if they get extensive enough they can be pretty good error coins.

Die cracks,yes. In common areas on the coin,yes. Added value,no.Die cracks only hold a premium if they are larger than most and if they are in "not" common areas on coins.

Yes, die cracks, quite common in these positions for the Memorial cent.

I refer to these as die events. Just common things that dies go through. All part of the die aging process.
