Not sure exactly what to call this break. Remnants of a strike through on reverse. Details are surprisingly crisp for the amount of metal flow. "Spike head" on obverse, multiple breaks on reverse. Three of the cracks appear to intersect somewhere along the inside edge of the oak branch / or the right side of the torch; its just incredibly difficult to get a photo of it. Let me know if y'all want any more images.

The die that struck you coin was in the VLDS. (Very-Late-Die-State) Thus thus very heavy die flow, device breakdown, with chips and cracks that is expect to be seen on that die state. Just a spender. The sad part of this is that it looked like that from the day it was struck. Not a keeper, but a spender.

Agree. The dies used were on the verge of collapse. Very 2x2 worthy.

Your coin looks like a few small cracks.

Thanks for the input everyone. I figured to be a true shattered die it needed to be more prominent with at least some degree of separation visible, or at least some depth to the crack. But I do enjoy these late die states. Something intriguing about a coin struck moments before the end of life of a die.
