I'm not sure what to think about this coin? PMD or ?
Both observe and reverse show signs of a fracture.
Thanks
Jb

Seem to be a small crack planchet. Those kind of crack are find in the begin of cracking planchet. The coin after this one I am sure has a nice one, your west rim show this. It is a keeper sure.

A little hard for me to confirm that it is a fracture. Especially on the obv, that looks more like a scratch, at least in these pics.

I'm thinking emergent lamination issues.

I was wondering as well if it's lamination. I agree it's difficult to confirm with the pictures.

the delamination is excluded here. The rim is crack on both sides which never happened till now on delamination.

Not a crack. Ether a scratch or lam. They don't line up with each other, so they are 2 different events.

So at first I thought it was a scratch as well but the edges is what changed my mind, well that and closer looks. The obverse goes from 9 to 2 but changes direction a little after the face. The reverse isn't as prominent. I'll try for better pics later.

To me it is a lamination. Note on the highest areas on the coin, how the lamination peels off slightly on these areas. Not a die crack.

The dies would have had to have been rotated from correct orientation when they struck this coin for this anomaly to be a cracked planchet error. The obverse and reverse anomalies do not line up if the die pair had been properly oriented.
Look at this overlay section of properly oriented dies to see that the anomalies on the coin above do not line up as a cracked plancet should.

It seems to be a lam.
