My father has a penny I grade at MS63 or 64. It's difficult to see through the sealed pouch he keeps it in, but you can tell in the picture that the 9 and 5 in the date have extra metal in them, possibly due to a die crack. Extra metal also fills the lower loop of the "S" mint mark. Could anyone suggest how I should go about finding a value for this coin?
Also, I see possible doubling in "IN GOD WE TRUST." I can't take a shot of this without my microscope as I am away from home, but, is anyone aware of a slight DDO on a 55 s penny? Thank you.

@cs, the extra metal bits are the result of small chips in the die used to strike this coin. I think that they are pretty common on cents of the '50s.

As to a value, check eBay's SOLD listings for a rough idea as to what other similar coins in this condition sold for.

Obverse digs would hold this to MS-62, I'm thinking. Sharper pics would help.

There also seem to be some prints on the reverse that lower eye appeal (and value). I would check eBay listings for approximate value, as suggested.
