I suppose US collectors would call this a "spike head". It goes straight from the rim into the main devices on the obverse die...

That's a very "straight" die crack, don't see that much.

Very cool. Looks more like a laser beam from low Earth orbit than a spike head.

I have seen one similar to yours 5 or 6 years ago at a show in Toronto. The Die Crack on your displayed coin seems much more defined.

I found two in the recent batch of nickel dollars I searched through. It sold quickly on eBay.
