It is a nice error coin. (Possible broken planchet), but not worth grading. (The fees would eat up possibly more than what the coin would get back. But a neat error coin. A keeper for sure.

If you are taking new images of you coin, I could use some full image shots of your coin. But if you can take full shots, take the images in 4 stages. The top 2/3, bottom 2/3 on both sides. That way I can put them back together when you post them. If you can get the full top rim and full bottom rim in each shot, then I can put them together. Best if the coin is horizontal, but it is off, I can adjust it to fix that as well. I could add these images to my educational files for further teaching aides. Thanks. Coop

That is a gnarly-looking edge. Nice find!

Just curious... where did you get this cent? Pulled from a roll? Change? Did you buy it? Just wondering how/if a coin like this could survive to be found, especially 60 years later. I'd like to think it could be still found (and found my me)

Coop, you know I ask more questions about errors than give answers, so here is mine on this one. I see what looks like a "ragged clip" from an excessive de-lamination issue, and wonder why you are calling it a "cracked planchet." Looks like most of the ragged clips I've seen, although quite a glorious one indeed compared to most.

Excellent error coin no matter how to label it.

Because it flowed across the incomplete planchet area. Then thinking more about it, ragged planchet is more correct. The blank was cut over a ragged edge of the stock material. Here are a few others I have on file:
