The first clue this is an aging die is the die flow lines on the fields. As the die ages, it starts to break down and crack. Note how short the devices are on this die. It has been polished already at least once or more times. Thus this is a senior die coin example. It might be listed on spiked head examples on cudsoncoins?

Nice condition with a 'Spike Head!' I don't see it listed on Cuds-on-Coins, but it does seem to be a common place for a die crack.

That is a nice one. Looks to me like it goes all the way along FDR's hair part.
