I think I would call the reverse a die crack with a die chip, not a die break.

The reverse crack returns weakly to the rim. The metal flow lines inside the crack (between the rim and the crack) suggest some displacement.

I wonder if this is an unlisted Retained Cud (now called "pre-cud")? It looks fairly close to RCD-1c-1955-S-01R, except that the obverse die is different.

Hm...there should be at least some minor evidence of a second crack connected to the wheat stem if it's a retained cud.

No evidence of a second crack on reverse image. This is not implied.

It's weak, but visible.

It think you are right on the BIE.

Is the obverse BIE area raised? I can't quite tell. How would that area look if it started to fail. I would imagine a bunch of small cracks or die chips falling off before the whole area breaks out. But I guess if the top part cleaved off clean it would only be a small bump.
