I found this one while going through some coins my dad has in his collection. The cracked skull is easy to identify, but I am not sure what to call the reverse. Is this a chip? It seems too big for that, but it can't be a cud because it is not on the edge. Any help properly identifying what to call this is appreciated.

Yes, that is a large die chip.
If it is over 4 square mm, it is then called a Die Break.

That helps a lot, Jimmy. At its widest point the chip is only 2mm. Thanks!
