    1955-S BIE Cohen B603

    Additional Information
    Date: 1955-S

    See here for High Resolution image of 55-S B603:

    https://easyzoom.com/image/125304

    There are only 4 "full" BIEs known for 1955-S:

    B601
    B603/4/5/6 with different stages of die cracks and chips on the reverse and slightly progressing strength of BIE
    B610
    B650 which is also RPM#4 Stage K, known as the "Sausage" BIE due its dramatic extent

    There is also a "half BIE" B906, and many of what I call "underscore" B_E types.
