So, stick a sharp tool in there and peel away the cracked finish and let us know what you find. Odds are you won't find a crack in the iron.

You're most likely right, Del. For one thing, this piano is really, really stable year to year.

cracks may happen around the bolts also, mostly where the iron is thin if I understand well. rarely it cause a problem with stability.

This sound more clearly like a crack in grey iron (even if not deep) than the ones of the Dan's picture (which looks like a vaccum molded plate) .
