Looks like a regular well circulated Mercury dime, with a minor die crack.

Agree, I think the term "Spike Head" generally refers to a die crack well up into the head area.

Nice Spike Rob!
A quote from cuds-on-coins.

Quote:
All "SPIKE HEADS" will have a die crack from the rim into any portion of the bust.
