1957-D Lincoln Wheat Cent BIE error - Ch MS
Reference Item Number: 190104014
This coin shows an error known as a BIE error - a piece of the die chipped out between the B and E of LIBERTY, and the result is a blob of metal that looks a little like the letter I - hence the BIE error. Very collectible and somewhat difficult to find in BU!
As a seller I believe in full disclosure by way of a detailed description and large, clear photographs when warranted, but many less expensive and bulk items make more sense to carry with 'sample' photographs rather than photographing each individual lot sold. For that reason, if the description above specifies that a stock image is used, be aware that the items you will receive are in like kind to the images provided, but WILL NOT be the exact same items.
