One way would be to look within the crack for evidence of oxidation/scaling. If the crack was existing prior to heat-treatment, the crack faces would have been exposed to the furnace atmosphere and would show some scaling. If the crack was extremely tight and got opended up or if the crack was produced by stress relieving, the crack surfaces would be relatively clean and fresh.

Best wishes.
