Hello. I found a 1957-D BIE LWC, and I know these are common, but I wanted to know if it carried any extra value. Thank you for your time.

I have a lot of those but haven't sold any. It might be worth a few dollars, literally. Just remember it's only going to be worth what someone will pay for it.

@CH, here is a close-up of LIBERTY. Maybe a broken post on the B as well? Not sure on value above that for a common date LWC.

Unbelievably common, sorry to say. No premium.

I regularly sell 10-12 different minor die chips in a small ziplock bag for $4 in local shows. These usually include a BIE, a plugged B, a skirted R, plugged 9, plugged 5, a few chips on the wheat stalks and 2 or 3 die cracks on the head, shoulder, or connecting a design element to the rim. In 1950s cents, these are extremely common, since production demands led to working the dies until they died. Small assortments like that are novelty items or stocking stuffers, but sometimes get young collectors started in looking for varieties and errors, and that's why I even mess with them.

The fun part of the minor die chips and cracks is how they give a glimpse into the minting process and the forces exerted on working dies. Yes, it's nerdy, but interesting.

Why not put it in a 2x2 and start an album of the different ones? It's not going to make you millions, but it's educational and can be a fun and inexpensive side collection.

When trying to find a value on something like this,check eBay sold value. See all the ones similar to the coin you have and average out the price.

You'll probably get a few dollars on eBay.
