Hi All.

I think I see the following:

Type 2 - based upon the shape of the S on reverse

Die crack- maybe? extending from the top of the crack on the Liberty Bell

Thank you for all opinions and comments.

Hard to tell IMHO due to the lighting. What I do think I can see, what you think is a die crack, looks like it is incuse and cuts and passes through the P in PASS. This would not be indicative of a die crack. A die crack would be raised. Looks more like a very thin 'slice' or cut of sorts and not a crack. Just my opinion.

Most definitely a variety 2 reserve and most likely just a scratch on the bell.

Still an Ike, so plenty to love.

Interesting secondary light source on the last image. The primary light is at 2:00. The secondary direction is at 5:00 at a very low angle. (And bluish in color)
