I have this coin as described with a die break on the obverse @ about 7.5 k. I pulled it out of my look later stash and just noticed the Crack.
My question is, how do proofs get struc from damaged dies ?
The reason I set this one aside was suspicion of DDO as wall as DDR. Then I saw the Crack.
There is a button load of varieties for this date that I will have to wade through.
My main question is the quality control these proof dies actually go thru.
At some later time I may provide images but only after I compare to the many examples that come close to what I observe.
Perhaps a savy Jefferson enthusiast might cut my search time.
Anyways, just asking.

Dearborn, I sure can. But not before I have the time to narrow it down. But this is not the time for me to do that.
I am mostly wondering how cracks make it on to proof coins. Lack of quality control is my best quess as this is surely not the only example.
It almost seems to me that common events that occur in business strikes, slip through as proofs. Am I wrong to think that these events degrade a proof coin? That is my inquiry.

damaged dies, should be pulled as soon as damage is spotted.. striking proof coins, does it happen ..probably. do some sneak through.. most likely..

With that being said there is a market for large die cracks on proof coins.. smaller the crack the smaller the interest. and premium.

Photos' would certainly help us go forward with this post..

edited for typo.

Breaking News! What I thought to be a break is actually a design element of the bust. Being immersed in Lincolns for the past couple of years, my familiararety of Jeffersons is quite lacking. Not to mention the difficulties in deserning any anomalies on proof coins due to the glare issues.
I appreciate the responses to this post and apologize for wasting anyone's time. If I knew how I would remove this post to prevent any more replies.
However, if I am able to find a match for the split serifs that show on the reverse,I will start a new thread seeking opinions.
Sorry about that.

We all have seen this happen. That is how we learn more, when these events happen. Don't sweat it.
