Description

This is one of the categories of die cracks. For this categorie, the crack must reach the rim in two different places on the coin. A slope can be found on the field of the coin, but it's not always the case. To conclude that the broken part is retained, it must include a portion of the design and/or legend. Otherwise, it's a Cuds.
