Cross-reference: none. The die crack extends along the lower part of Lincoln’s bust. Though it does enter the rim below the lower front of the bust, it terminates at the other end under the I of LIBERTY.

This unusual die crack begins at the rim top of the D in GOD. It runs into the head and branches off in many directions. One branch runs to the back of the neck.  Another die crack starts at the rim to the left of VBD and runs up the coat. In the area between the back of the neck and the coat there is a line that appears to be PSD (Post Strike Damage) or a very light crack between the coat and the back of the neck. A another example of this die is needed to compare to this area.

This Die Crack is unusual because of the location of the crack. Most Lincoln Memorial Cent Die Cracks from the top of the Lincoln Memorial run up to the rim. This one runs down to the last “A” in “AMERICA”.

This unusual die crack is the result of severe die damage and found on the reverse of this 1983 Lincoln Cent.

Per Mike Diamond “What you have is severe die damage on both faces that resulted from the dies striking a hard object sandwiched between the dies.  The dies cracked as well from the impact.”

This Die Crack is unusual because of the location of the crack(s) and the length which runs from the rim above the “A” in AMERICA down to the top of the “N” in CENT. Note the die chip at the top of the 9th bay of the memorial.
