That is funny @nzs! How odd that the damage to the letter created a dorsal fin.

Cool looking, they almost look like die chips. You may want to check out 013 and 016, can't tell because of the angled pic you have though. Take a look. http://www.varietyvista.com/02a%20L...201957D.htm)

There are a few on cc that look similar too, if you are interested.

If you do that closeup Dearborn asked for, can you get one of the 9 also. It may be displaced metal from there.

The largest one on the 7 looks like a die chip but the others look like damage.

Looks like over printing, post "penny shark fins" in support of your Olympic swimming team!
All pics taken at different angles, rotated and enlarged.

1957 D had a lot of dies chipping around the date, and although I've never seen this one I'd go with die chips. There is a somewhat similar oddity with one die that looks like icicles hanging off the mint mark.
