Steve, that isn't all that unusual where the field meets the edge of a device. It's kind of like standing on the very rim of a gully that has been formed by flood waters. Some of the earth is sure to give way. The die, itself, could have been brand new and the breaks formed as soon as it was put into service.


I have bags of 2005 CA SQ's that I got form the Mint as soon as they were released. There are so many filled, die chips on the obverse and reverse that it looks like the condor had diarrhea.
