Hey Everyone,
I ran across this 1956 D Penny and I could use some extra eyes to help determine whether or not it's the D over shadow D. I could swear I see the shadow D but I want to make sure my eyes aren't playing tricks on me since it's a fairly worn coin.

Thanks for the help!

It is were a mintmark punch it would be raised. It is level with the field, but is just a stain. If it came from the die it would have to be an incuse mark on the die, to make a raised mintmark on the die. It's not. Just a stain.

Thanks for the input! After seeing your responses I was able to get a better angle with my microscope and I confirmed that it's not fully raised like in the example. It looks like I was fooled by die polish lines, a stain, and some shadows. I really appreciate the responses.

Anything going on with the reverse--die cracks or die chips?
