    1956-D Strange Die Gouge

    Found this coin in a mixed group, appears to have a strange die gouge that looks very much like doubling on Lincoln's coat. Nothing major, just something different.

    That is a well known die gouge. I have searched tons of 1956D cents and have come across many of these.
