Good afternoon everybody!

I have been searching google (and the forum) for what this might be, but I'm coming up empty. What is going in with the 1 in the date? I thought damage at first but it's a nice clean turn, and I can't see evidence that the top of the 1 was ever in any other position. Is this just lucky damage?

Might be a die chip, like that just under the loop of the 9.

That is a very strange die chip! I've never seen one like it

It has taken a hit pushing the top part of the 1 over. You can see where the inside of the loop on the 9 has also been affected. PMD

I have to disagree with JimmyD and be on the coinfrog lillypad, because I have this coins "die brother" and I remember in the past couple of years 2 or 3 of these have been posted with the posted asking the same...answer die chips....use the search box and maybe you can come across these old posts

If it is a Die Chip, then where is the top of the 1?
In 1957 the 1 was higher than the 9. Also if you look closely, you can see the discolouration where the top of the 1 was.

Agree, we saw the twin of this coin not that long ago. You don't forget that 1.

I searched the forum but didn't see those posts. I suppose I might have just overlooked them.

They look like die chips to me. Very common on 50s LWCs, especially inside the loop of the 9.

Nice work finding that thread @roth! It is nice to see the similarities between the two coins.

I have to go with die chips as well. They seem to show up all over the place on '50s cents and very often.
