Hi all,

I got an uncirculated 2018 D and I found something in the REV looks like is not suppose to be there. The thing is that I found over 100 pennies with the same or similar crack in only 10 rolls. Also one of them has a line from face thru the back of head. What could this be? Thanks

Looking at your images here, these look like very minor "DIE CRACKS" to me ... JMO

Thanks JMO and Daniel. Would be wise to hoard these rolls? I have been finding an average of =>5 pennies in every roll. Minor die crack = Face value.

I think you just answered your own question.
You are finding five in every roll. They are extremely common and add no premium to the coins.

So, if you are collecting to eventually sell these, they will not gain in value.
If you are collecting them because they interest you on how the die cracks change over time, go for it.
