    Laurie, does the bottom of the E look like it's bent and removed or fully like that minted?

    Whether it's worth money I don't know but it's a keeper more for it being different type of thing, at least to me.
    If the bottom of that E shows all the signs that it was minted like that and not bent down or damaged I can see others having interest in it. The forum seems to think it's post mint damage and i'm a novice, so it's only my 2 cent's of input.

    The 44D is in great shape but there were just so many made I see it at being worth maby 50 cents tops.
    Sometimes the story's of how people came across their coins are worth more sentimental wise:)

    Please. If that was a mint error, it would mean that the die was damaged or made that way and there would be thousands of others just like it. PMD plain and simple. The '44D is nice for its age and would be a good candidate for your cent album.

    PMD but it is a keeper for sentimental reasons just because it looks different, and in 50 years your grandkids could be spellbound by a made-up story surrounding the "bent" E! So many possibilities, get creative (and keep it).

    Copper is a very soft metal and a sharp hit on the lower bar of the E could cause it to point down.

    The 44D in uncirculated condition is a $0.50 coin.

    The 44D I like the 55 is like MM said PMD.

    The 1955 cent looks to be from a die gouge or die scratch which ever we want to call it . Coin dies can get gouges or scratches in them anywhere. I have seen a few coins with die gouges that sometimes can connect to the letters or numbers. I have a wheat back cent here somewhere that has a perfect die gouge almost where the gouge is on the op's coin but on mine the gouge runs just below the letters in Liberty.
