Ron Guth:

Of the several Spiked Chin varieties, the Cohen 6 is the most interesting because of the numerous die states caused when the reverse dies deteriorated over time. The reverse die started out in a nearly perfect state than began to crack arond the legends. Eventually, pieces of the die began to fall off, leaving cuds on the coins. In the latest states, the Cohen 6 presents a massive cud along the reverse rim from 2 o'clock to 7:30. The late Gene Braig was fascinated with this variety, he collected as many different die states as he could find, and he produced the most recent and extensive listing of the die progression, with numbers for each distinct die state.

Though this variety is common, it is definitely rare in Mint State. To our knowledge, there are no Red-Brown or Red examples known.
