So far this is the most exciting one for me.If it is a die break, it goes from the "T" in United and into the top-left corner of the Memorial building. There's a gap at the second column, then starts again at the 3rd and stretches just passed the bottom part of the 4th column.

Some of the pictures are not the best but this was a tough one for me to get.

I apologize for the multiple pictures. I'm not sure how that happened. I'm trying to get a fluid system down but resizing, saving and delegating images has proven to be quite the task. I'll get there.

From the rim to the corner of the building is a die crack and in a common area. The marks inside the bays are clash marks also kinda common.

Common area for die cracks as noted. Agree pic overload - one would have been sufficient.

Looks like the die clash cracked the reverse die. Thus the clash line is there and a die crack. Not a die break. A die break is a lot larger because the metal is falling away from the die. On a die crack, there is no metal from die die falling away yet. Note what a die crack looks like on a die:

Note the left rear image. If show the crack going deep into the die. The crack on the die leaves a void. The metal from the planchet flows into the void and show a raised area on the coins struck with that die. The deeper the crack gets, the wider the crack will become. If other metal breaks off of the cracked area, then that is a die break. But so far on the die that struck this coin, just has a die crack.

I appreciate everyone letting me know that I overloaded with duplicate pictures, even after I mentioned mentioned it and apologize for it before anyone responded to the post. Thanks for the info though.

Nice (but common) die crack.

No need to draw on your photos. Your close up showed the crack nicely alone.
