Well, here's another one, guys. This is a 1974-S Silver proof Ike in OGP. This line starts in the field just to the left of the R in LIBERTY and travels down almost to Ike's temple. Is this a die scratch or a die crack? Also, there appears to be a strike-thru anomaly (thread?) in the field near the rim between the R and T of LIBERTY, and it continues onto the rim itself. It looks very similar to the struck-thru thread anomaly on the PR67DCAM Nightcrawler I purchased from Brian. Also, check out the 7. It presents with a very prominent notch on the tip. What do you make of all this? There seems to be a lot going on with this one.

I'd say that's a long die crack to the left of the R, as well as between the R & T at the rim.

As far as the 7, I'm not sure it's anything significant.
