Please post larger, sharp photos of the coin's obverse and reverse--the larger and sharper the better (within the photo size constrains of the forum, of course). The '55 Wheat cent can have many things going on with it. Copper is a relatively soft metal and can be moved/reshaped when hit just right. Larger photos may show that the nose was hit in a fashion that created the 'no nose' look. May have been deliberate.

Please if you can post up a few better images cropped to full coin both sides with as little background as possible.

Looks like the result of a nice, low angle hit from NE to SW. Note the pushed metal. Not an error--didn't leave the striking chamber this way.

Full coin photos may show other interesting things which are often found on '55 Philly wheat cents.

Note the area that looks like pushed snow in the winter. That is where is left from that area. The coin was normal when it was struck, but it looks like the snowplow spotted it and moved it. This is not a coin striking error. If that area is the only area affected, it may have been deliberate. No premium for a damaged coin. (not even it is was caused by Machine Doubling) First time I've seen this, but it not a good look for Abe.

Too many photos.

As mentioned, PMD. The metal has been moved into a clump.

The concept of maturity is complex. While one's capacity to be mature can be correlated with age, someone's overall maturity and respect for life is not. Maturity is formed through experience and perception.

with above statements.

Snowplow effect - that is a cool way to 'coin' a new phrase.
