Hi, I was wondering if I could please get the communities opinion on this coin please? There is a strange crack between the "E" in UNITED and the Lincoln Memorial on the reverse. I thought it might be a Die crack at first, but then I thought that die cracks left raised areas on the coin. This seems to be indented. It also seems to go into the building slightly, but the building doesn't look damaged. What do y'all think? I'm still pretty new to the hobby and looking to learn.

Thanks everyone

A Die Crack would be raised.
It looks like it could be a scratch.

Yes looks more like a scratch than struck through to me too. Hard to say for sure though.

I'm going with a struck through. I see the bottom on the E has part of it also.
