There are a plethora of great die cracks out there just waiting for attribution. If you run across any coins with extreme or interior cracking, please consider sending in your coin for listing.

Rules for attribution of cracked dies:

  • All bisecting die cracks are attributable. Crack must be visible in the center, or very near center, of the die and extend to either rim.
  • “Shattered” dies that exhibit several cracks over a substantial portion of the die.
  • “Round-a-bout” die cracks often go from one side of a coin to the other, but not through the center. These are U-shaped or circular.
  • Once a crack becomes a cud, it will also be given a CUD listing
