I think I found a die chip error on this 1983 coin. It is on the 8 in the 1983 date. Also, on the reverse, I noticed a line (die break?) that extends from the bottom of the Lincoln Memorial on the righthand side to the edge of the coin near the initials FG.

I hope these pictures are good enough to see the details I'm referring to. I am still learning this computer system, and am having issues with my photos. Computers now days frustrate me to no end, but I am determined.

Your pics are fine and I agree with your assessment, although I would call it a broken post on the date and a die crack on the Lincoln Memorial.

A broken post and Die Crack.
The crack is in a common location and not unusual to see
one at the bottom of both sides of the memorial.

1983 Lincoln Cents are notorious for Die Cracks and Die Chips. I have found quite a few and one with 7 Die Cracks. Regards and good hunting!

Thanks for the encouragement and input. I am excited that I am getting some of the terms.
