I think I am ready to melt.

Those proofs are beyond outstanding. Its like you jumped in a time machine and went back to 1887 and stood underneath the hopper at The Royal Mint!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Many of the letters and the top of her crown are re-stamped (proper term?)
I think you're referring to the doubling. This is Machine Doubling and very common. It isn't a variety, just the die juddered a bit when it hit the coin.

Double dies are the other possibility, where the doubling is on the die and so lots of coins have the same doubling - these are varieties (because lots of coins will have it) but as has been said, unlike US coins, British double die coins don't tend to go for huge money.

Is this a planchet crack or die crack in the second last photo ?

Looks to be a die crack - it appears to be proud of the surface rather than a crack into the surface.

Interesting, but again not of any great value above normal for the coin.

The 1821 Crown graded at Ef40 as a Secundo variety.
