Die chip on chin and looks like a small lamination on the back pretty common on the Wheat cent don't know about value but my gut says not much over a few dollars maybe?

Die chips are fairly common on '50's cents.

with the assessments given. Might have a slight premium to the right collector but these are quite common to find.

Agree with all above. There are some collectors 'out there' who lust after die chips and lamination issues--the more dramatic the feature(s), the more value. These examples would appear to be on the lower end of the 'dramatic' scale.

The flat area on the chin opens up the possibility that the obverse blob of metal could be plowed metal from the chin area instead of a die chip.

Me I understand what you want to say by assimilation of the plowing with the displacement of the metal. Metallurgical is only one expression :plowed steel which mean other thing.

What the numismatics term could be most appropriate to employ here then "plowed" ?

stoneman, you made me go back and look again. And you are right. Abe cut his chin shaving.

My use of plowed is very much a layman's interpretation.
If this had been a section of one of the digits or numerals that had been hit and moved out of position then my thought would have been it was "pushed" metal , as more than likely it would have retained it's general shape.
On this particular coin, if the anomaly on the obverse is metal that had formed Abe's chin , it no longer retains its original shape. It more resembles a material that is piled up after being "plowed" into that position

As I state I understood you perfect, and I do not say is not right or you has the credit to see this. But numismatic? how we can name? the Lexicon I think is far to be finish or 100% correct. We has to find a name for this kind.

You could say the chin was gouged and the metal amassed next to it. Not sure if that is numismatic.

Ploughed seems fine to me but if it's not a good term how about "scraped" or "pushed into a linear pile" since that may literally be what happened?
