Interesting coin!! Could be an early stage of 57D-CL412, later stage 57D-B475 "BIE", in the 1969 edition of "THE CLASSIFICATION AND VALUE OF ERRORS ON THE Lincoln CENT" by Jean Cohen. This 1957-D Cent, 1 of 120 for that date & MM, is listed under CLOGGED LETTERS and BIE. Markers are (Die break closes G od GOD. Die break above D and W in motto. Die crack over VBD. See with "BIE". Now what is interesting is the none of the reverse markers match? I'm thinking the Reverse die was changed. It would be neat to find the 57D-B475 to do an overlay and compare it to your coin.
