Just notice this coin in the Price guide on this web sight and was wondering if any one can explain this to me , The picture isn't real clear but to me it just looks like a Die crack , possibly combined with a Filled 6 . Is this correct???

The ‘1946 design in 6’ is a combination of two die chips and a die crack. Coins can be found with an interim stage of a die chip and a die crack, and even earlier, coins with just a die chip (quite common on the 1946s, as there are several different ones).

maybe i should start a new thread for this but , there is a higher value placed on the 1946 Design but then you go to the 1950 and there is a higher value for the No Design , were damaged coins more common then standard ones for that year????

Thanks troubadour, that makes more sense. The photo on the price guide and value just showed the no design picture and it wasn’t making sense to me but that helps.
