. Little to no premium. Those die chips are in common areas on the coin.

@han, first welcome to CCF. Second, these die chips are fun but pretty common as noted by @john1. You could look at ebay sold listings to get an idea of what others have paid.

As noted above, die chops (particularly on 1950s wheat cents) are rather common in the locations yours are. Any die chips on the reverse?

While kinda cool, they really bring little premium--unless they are more dramatic (larger) and occur on a pristine, high grade coin, in which case they may have a little more value. A manic collector who loves Wheat cent die chips might pay 75 cents to a dollar 50 for yours.

Very common as noted, particularly on this date.

These are die events. Not die varieties. So when that event happened, then all the other coins from that point on will all look like that. So as many as 54% of the cents from that die could be affected. So they are just a common die event.

The die chip on the liberty is known as a BIE. Look on "cuds on coins". Back in the 60s and 70s there was a BIE club, don't know if they are still going or not

As mentioned, check eBay's SOLD listings and find similar coins and see what they sold for to get a rough idea as to value if sold.
