Found this guy a couple months ago. it was also the first "BIE" penny ive ever found. I was going through my rolls of wheat backs (atleast a full roll for each Decade) that ive been collecting since I was a kid.

Good morning Jsertl

Nice find. I recently started collecting "BIE" cents.

When I do, I try and match it to other attributed "BIE"s listed on Cuds-On-Coins.com. http://cuds-on-coins.com/ldb-1954-s/

Yes looks like a BIE--very nice to find your first one (hopefully of many)! It is a little hard to get details from your overall pic, but I tried to enlarge and enhance this area:

Good eye, very common on mid-'50s wheats.
