Chip out of the bottom of the 6 in the date.
Chip in the die or something that added an extra line on the R in LIBERTY.
What is going on with his head?
Is that normal spacing and size of the last T in TRUST?
Die chip on the left wheat head.
Tiny S in PLURIBUs, is that normal? Doesn't seem like it compared to my other wheat cents.

I'd like to get your guys' thoughts and opinions. Much appreciated.

Looks like a retained interior die break (RIDB). Nice find!

@mnall, it looks like you have uploaded pics from a second coin. This can happen when you use the same file name for two different pictures.

For the '56 cent, the "chip" out of the number 6 in the date would most likely be damage.

Thanks for the replies! @Spence Couldn't get the camera to focus on it, I'll try to get a better picture because it looks very different under magnification or even with the naked eye.
@josephm99 Thank you I thought it was pretty neat. I was like wow they went all out on his hair for this one

Your "clipped" 6 is from a die issue and not post mint damage, you'll find them common. Some are an indication or marker for a DDO coin. Check VarietyVista.com and you'll see what I'm talking about....good luck on future finds, have fun

@Greasy Fingers,

Hey thanks for the reply. I am having quite a bit of fun going through some of my old coins, my dad's old coins, and some new stuff I picked up. So far learning quite a bit and finding some interesting stuff.
