1951 P Jefferson Nickel - die crack
1 1

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I just received this 1951 P a few days ago and noticed something during the photo session for my registry set. I am wanting to say there is a possible die crack on the reverse. It starts at the bottom of pillar 3, moves up through the pillar, through the triangle, follows the dome, and up to the bottom of the S in PLURIBUS. It looks raised from the surface with no color change along the line. It seems to follow the profile of the device with no gaps and has a jagged appearance. At first I thought it may be a scratch but upon further inspection (10x and 30x loupe) I believe it is a die crack. If so, I would like to put this out there as reference material for anyone else looking for similar information. All feedback is welcome. Thanks for looking.
