Can't wait to get this in my hands in a week. A beautiful coin. Has anyone ever seen so many die cracks?

Can't see much from the scan, but Rev looks like at least one long one. It also looks like lots of corrosion. There's a nice variety with a repunched "N" .. the 1st N in the legend under the tree.

Another thing to check is the die axis they have two different type Medal axis being the harder one to find

Papledog, I'm afraid it is the more common of the two, judging by the positioning of the coin in the beautiful holder made with Saskatchewan seal skin binding. :(
And Okiecoiner, I believe I count 5 long cracks all along the outside letters on the reverse. Need my iphone or ipad to view, but they are there. It's a wonder the die held together that long.
Can't wait to post clear photos once it arrives.

Appears to be two distinct separate cracks on the word "ISLAND."

I have just begun to closely inspect this coin, but it didn't take me long to come up with a question for the experts.
The hole in the "Q," is it a planchet issue, or would it have been caused by a foreign object caught on the die?

I did a little digging, and see they all seem to have a hole in the same place. Anyone know why?

okiecoiner, I don't see signs of doubling on that N you were speaking of, but what about the R? Also, The V in Victoria looks pretty funky, any expert opinions?
