Thought I'd check in with the experts. Die crack or metal flow?

Looks like it has pretty good MDD going of the letter I see. Don't know about the other letters....Not sure if you can get MDD from a rim or not?....Any strong MDD in the MOTTO, Date. LIBERTY or MM?

Happy Hunting!

Hey Brian...thanks for taking a look. There's no mechanical doubling evident anywhere but obvious die clashing going on. I'm thinking the raised line on the coin has something to do with the die being heavily abraded working out the clashed areas but probably not.

I'm inclined to think heavy (or even moderate) abrading is correct.
