Thanks to everyone on my other posts. I'm still learning obviously and have a long way to go. Going through the wheats, I have noticed that a few of the 1944s with titled Ds. I assume this was just sloppy punching?








The 1936 D has a mint mark that is so thick that it doesn't seem to have a full center. Seems like a lot of extra metal here for it to be wear?






The 1957 D has raised metal on the north west. Can die chips happen down in the mint mark?

Tilted mintmarks are completely normal. They were all placed into the dies by hand, and some of them are not perfectly straight up and down - no biggie.

The 1936D is normal - this is just what the punch looked like then.

The 1957D took a hit and suffers from moved metal due to the hit.

Thanks again for taking a look at my pennies! Maybe this will help some other people out who have noticed the same things.
