    As a follow up, here is a 2015 P in which the common Die Chip is much bigger. The largest I have seen so far, perhaps even can qualifying as an IDB instead of a Die Chip. Although common, maybe it can be listed because it's so big. Will send to JC as I don't see it listed.
    Thanks

    Very cool!! Did you hit it with a toothpick to make sure it wasn't a bubble?

    Not before you mentined as I'm sure it isn't. I have seen tens of them already; but smaller. Now that you mentioned it I just applied a little pressure with a toothpick and it remained there. The coin is so neat that I don't want to damage it. It is not a plating bubble, that's for sure.

    This is the result after a slight pressure with finger nail and toothpick. Still there, unchanged.
    Thank you Jon.

    Nice!! I've not seen that on a shield. That should be a nice listing!! I look forward to what JC has to say!

    Just noticed from your clearer images that there appears to be a raised area going from the IDB to the E of E PLURIBUS. Wonder if this could be part of the anomaly.
    And is there a bulge in the edge of the shield that could be die damage as well?

    There is an associated die crack in the area extending up to in between the E and P in E PLURIBUS. The bulge in the edge of the shield I have seen it almost always when I have found this die problem in a much smaller scale, they should be associated in some way. I think its also caused by the die crack.
    Thanks for you interesting observations.

    Here is a pic that may help observing the anomaly.

    Very good image. Thanks.
    I have noticed these before, on the smaller scale, and chalked it up to a possible die clash (misaligned?). But your much larger example certainly makes me wonder.
