I'm trying to learn from you all so I appreciate you In advance. is this a die break on the head, a die chip on the date, and I'm lost on the wing coming off the Mint Mark. I know E&V said the 50's are notorious for overusing the dies so is this common?

The wing on the mint mark looks like a small die crack. The die chips and cracks are very common on the Wheat cent series. Like E&V said, the dies were overused greatly. It's a very nice coin never the less.

Also maybe a die chip coming off of Abe's chin? Or is that damage?

Interesting multiple-error coin, but not a whole lot of added value here.

Good pick up on the interesting die chip.

It reminded me of this guy! (Maybe before he let his hair grow wild?)
