    Both are common enough, but less so when in a pair of dies. The rotation is probably the more interesting condition but it depends on the severity of the rotation. It needs to be significant before it generates any kind of premium. Broken die can mean many things, so without pictures, it's tough to say what you have there. Might be a simple crack/chip or perhaps a cud/retained break. So, post some photos and the group can comment.

    You will need to show a picture in order for us to be able to help you. A broken or worn cracked die would cause Die Breaks on a coins. They come in many shapes and sizes on any and all coins.

    The reverse is rotated about 95 degrees

    This looks to be a rim-to-rim die break. That is significant and desirable. 95 degrees is significant as well. I would also like to see the full images. Can you photograph the obverse and reverse as paddy suggested?

    @TFirm ...also, prop the coin in front of a mirror and post a picture of that...this will illustrate the reverse rotation sufficiently...95 degrees is definitely impressive and collectable...

    the rim to rim die break is way cool...and, 2016 Philly has doubled die varieties too...have you checked the coin for those?...you may have a hat trick!…Spark

    That's an impressive die break, especially the shift over the date. Nice!
