What's the reverse look like? Other than cracked maybe a planchet flaw
or on a long shot some sort of wire strike through. Wire being from a bristle
from a brush used to clean the dies.

Cool find.

I guess a crack would be some sort of planchet flaw

Lamination Flaw
I think when the metal doesn't flow properly, due to contamination, it's called a lamination flaw
There are different types of lamination flaws IIRC

Increased value in Franklin Halves is in the BELL strike. Some of the bell bands fail to appear in the striking.
