I think this coin has lots of character. I'm not familiar with Shield nickel die pairings but this must be a late stage something.

Thanks for L@@King

Woah this must have been close to when the die just simply shattered away, I enjoy die cracked coins alot myself, and perhaps this could get a small bonus in value...

I think Shield nickels are often found with die cracks.
Great type coin you have with rays. (Might be one reason rays were removed from reverse in series)

It looks like there are at least two more, at 7:00 and 8:30. The one at 10:00 also appears to branch to the outer leaf of second leaf cluster. The crack from the rim through OD to the top of the cross continues across the top, down across the right arm, through the curl and then through the first two leaf clusters on the right. It may also join up with the crack through T and the one at 2:45.

It's actually probably harder to find one without cracks.
