Cross reference: none. The die crack is seen through the face of Liberty, from rim to opposing rim. While on the verge of being a split die, the width of the die crack is to small to classify it as such.

It does seem that the year 1994 was infamous for this type of error. The die crack originates above the first A in AMERICA, travels through the Memorial building and exits through the N of CENT into the rim.

The 1940-S Winged Liberty Head dime has a bisecting rim to rim die crack on the obverse die. The die crack starts at the rime above the E in LIBERTY, goes into Liberty’s cap and into her hair. There is a junction where another die crack has formed that travels upward to the left and blind ends. The die crack re-enters the bottom portion of Liberty’s cap, passes through her neck and terminates at the opposing rim.
