Neat how the fracture follows the spear line.
Makes me wonder if it didn't cause it...

I agree: the green cast makes for a fabulous picture.

Spear (or chin?) = lightning rod ?
The crack appears to stop at the chin, possibly due to increased thickness at that point.

Coin may be delicate. Handle carefully.
