Bust Quarter Help Requested - plenty of die breaks

Thanks in advance-
What is the Browning variety and scarcity of this piece?
I thought it would be easy to find searching Heritage archives but I didn't see one with these die breaks.

    Thanks, my photos don't do it justice, as there is some bluish tone not captured, and the die breaks on both sides form large 'T' shapes, that are difficult to see in the images.

    I was also able to attribute it as B-6, from the obverse die crack, using only the images on PCGS CoinFacts:
    pcgscoinfacts.com/Coin/Detail/39002
    Click on "Show All Related Coins and Varieties" to see an index to photos of all Browning varieties for this date.
    PCGS CoinFacts has become a great tool for quick die variety checking in some series, if you don't have the book.
    Here's an XF-45 image of B-6 from CoinFacts:

    Thanks yosclimber - I've never been aware of that feature - I usually just look at the auction results by grade for the date, and occasionally the rarity and survival estimates.
