6D2 Die issue or wire spike throat?

Found this one this evening. Not sure if it is a die break or maybe wire. Forms a very nice spike.

Nice find.

That is definitely from a die crack. You can see the crack extends much farther by the faint line on the field that leads from the end. I suspect it filled only a short way from the heavy cross section since the crack likely is largest there and gets much thinner further out.

It's possible the rest of the crack being more narrow plugged with metal as well.
