Would this be considered a die break, die chip or both?
Thanks for your input Smudge. Your are a real happy person aren’t you?
Good question. Its a die crack/break going through the W, but I think the vertical part that looks chipped on the head may be a corrosion blister
A little bit closer picture. It looks like it oozed out of crack and dripped down head
Large die chip or small die break..... take your pick.
Edited to add: Welcome to the forum!
pretty sure this is from the effect of denying gravity and shooting guns straight up in the air!
we can call it, "once upon a time in mexico..."

Looks like Abe took one in the chest with that "hole".
Looks like a trifecta. Die break, which chipped, and which also appears to have slight planchet lamination around the break (although I may be wrong on that last part).
Welcome to the forum!
It has an interesting look. Neat find.
For your viewing pleasure.
OAKSTAR you are the man !
@OAKSTAR nice sluicing
Small die crack. IMO
Yep... Die crack with progression on the head.... Cheers, RickO
