I have several of these 5 Sen coins and found a progression in the die crack on 3 of them. Interesting how it progressed. At the 10 o'clock position. Hard to be-leave this little coin is 146 years old, excellent condition.

The one on the bottom looks like the die was really nearing its retirement.

Is the reverse die the same on all three as well?

Looking at the crack in the die it would appear that it is the same die for all three

What I should have asked is are the obverse and reverse die the same on all three, or is just the one with the die crack the same on all three.

The first 2 appear to be similar. Not sure if the third obverse is the same. I will recheck them. I do have 10 of them so I could have messed up the pictures I posted.
