and some cracking or die break on reverse. Anybody have any ideas?

remember, they're all sorts of "automated" coin rolling machines, all the way to "Manual" coin rolling machines .. where it's up to the person to manually with either hold the wrapped coins up to an automated paper roller, or even a manual paper roller device.
If you look at the arc, you'll see it's not consistent. It changes angles at the back of the neck. So probably some form of manual device as it also has many scraps. So may or maybe not a coin rolling device.
You should ask the person that damaged it why and how they did that so far away from the rim (rhetorical question). Maybe it was a machine for a smaller foreign coin or maybe something entirely different ?? (again ask the person that did the damage).
It's always best to discern what is damage and not necessarily worry about exactly how or why it occurred ...
Right, I know better to I was just scowering the internet looking for any mint error that came near it, there's nothing. Definitely a small ring to be in the center if a dime, but I've got some Soviet coins that are about a third of the size of a us dime and I'd say they tube up coins in a similar fashioned, so I shifted my suspicion in the direction of pmd. The snot rocket die crack and break onothe eyelid is cool though.
ahh .... dimes domed (dapped) and polished ...
The link you had are the tools for larger for folded or for finishing the folding (after you normally drill a hole in the middle).
For smaller objects and doming they use "dapping" sets.
which a lot of "newbies" don't buy the good dapping sets and try "at home" stuff with varying success and failures. I know, my kids and friends have tried.
