Thread: 1957 D weird BIE, and 1956 RIDB

  1. Cool 1957 D weird BIE, and 1956 RIDB

    Hi all,
    I found some interesting lincoln cents while going through some rolls. The first one is a 1957 D with some very unusual scratches in LIBERTY. I don't know if it would be considered the beginning stages of a BIE error. It also has large die gouges on the rim of the coin obverse side, as well as the reverse.
    The second coin is a 1956 with an interior die break on the obverse. It's actually quite large. It's on the bowtie. The 1956 also has a nice gouge underneath "GOD" which is visible in the first photo. Are these already known to anyone?

    Thanks for any help.

    Jessica, your 1956 with the Die Chip could be the 56-T26 which Jean Cohen listed on page 273 “DIEBREAKS AT THE TIE” in her 1969 edition of “THE CLASSIFICATION AND VALUE OF ERRORS ON THE LINCOLN CENT” is a must have for any collector of Lincoln Cent Errors and Varieties. Check for a light die crack from the tip of the left wheat to the rim on the reverse.

    You’ll find 144 BIE listings in the book for 1957D starting on page 69. IMO your 1957D is not a die chip "BIE".

    If you are ANA member you can check out her book from their library.
