Im still learning, is this a die break or a cud? Or how do you classify it? Is it worth saving? It has the big one on the front, and also there is a small "cud"? on the back by the wheat stock. Thanks for the help. :)

Obverse is a decent lamination, and the reverse is a die crack. 2x2 worthy.

The top of the E has taken a hit displacing the copper.

Yes that looks like the very start of a die crack too. These tend to form at areas of higher stress, such as at sharp corners on the design. Nice find!

Agree with JImmyD and also that there may be a second lam forming between the N and the E.

Nice mix of lamination issues, die crack off the left wheat. Yes, 2x2 worthy.

Reverse Die cracks (wheat and the E). Observe it is aging cooper exfoliation (remember that was bronze alloy, we say fish bronze exfoliation). Numismatics will be say: LAM.
