    It might even get used as a stage if it's the same but bigger or smaller. There should be a link there to contact.

    Looks like Ed got you going in the right direction and explained it better than I ever could! Did you find the link on the left side of the page for emailing attributions? Link (http://cuds-on-coins.com/attribution...on-what-to-do/) It explains in detail how and what to do. I look forward to seeing what you come up with! That is a really nice looking BIE!

    The site I sent you to is Cuds on Coins and is another good site to just hop on and surf around to see what's out there! You can spend hours and not see it all!

    BIE: A die chip that develops between the B and E of LIBERTY, which often resembles a letter I, hence the name. This particular spot is a weak spot in the die and chronic die over-use in the 1950s produced many of these die chips.


    Spend a little time reading through the glossary and acronym lists I have made right here. It will answer a lot of your questions right off the bat.

    Nice BIE... Did you check out the one that Jon (makecents) pointed out http://cuds-on-coins.com/ldb4-1956-2/ The crack along the bottom of the shoulder looks like it may be there on yours but I can not tell for sure... It looks like yours is longer which if it matches would make sense as your BIE is more developed... On the one you pointed out the chip on the rev looks good but the BIE does not match... I do not see the knob off the top of yours that shows on the CC coin and the width of the BIE on yours is much wider than the COC sample... Your rev die could be the same rev die as the COC sample but used with a different obv!!!
