I found this nickel and noticed the die cracks on the reverse but I cant tell if they are die cracks that are worth down or what.

please post pics of the full obverse and reverse, I am not seeing any die cracks at all, those are remnants of a die clash that wasn't fully polished out

Die cracks will result in raised lines on the coin. The photos are too close and blurry to tell what's happening.

The lines are convex not concave

Very hard to get a picture of the whole coin and keep it under 300kb while able to see the raised lines

CoinTheTerm nailed it. The coin shows a heavy die clash. Interesting.

Here's an overlay of the Jefferson nickel. You can see where the lines on you coin match up.
