well here is a 1949 Thailand 20 satang , the coin is made of tin, now many people have said the coin shows other issues but this is the most noted one a die crack, the coin has pretty good detail and would IMHO grade very good

I don't think that is a die crack...more than likely a planchet flaw. A die crack typically leaves a raised area on a coin...

it looks more like a crack, not a die crack but just a plain old crack or possibly some dirt/contamination got in there during the minting process?

well one thing is for sure the minting process went wrong somewhere and the coin ended up with a crack in it, how it happened is a matter of debate but one thing is known it's a error coin
