    ...and between the "BE" is the start of (swelling) another chip which eventually will become a "BIE" variety.
    Grease comes of a surface with a solvent. What is on your coin is hard metal.

    Not quite serious enough to be a BIE cent, but it is approaching it.
    Good catch. Keep an eye out for these, they are pretty cool!

    @Kristine Garrant
    Nothing to do with a compacted grease strike. That would eliminate the letters. When it is raised that's a part of the die in that area that broke/chipped off.
    That's why it's called a Die Chip. It's a worn Die issue.
    Found commonly on Wheat Cents. Nice find.

    Also.. Please provide the date! There's reasons why we need the date to provide better information!

    :D I think this newbie may have attended the same HS that I went to. o_O:facepalm:
    On a coin as this where the question is about one characteristic that is clearly shown on a tiny part of the coin, except in very rare cases, there is absolutely no need to see any other part of the coin; its edge; the holder it is in; or the fingernails of its owner. IMO, the only reason someone might want to know the date is to keep records, check out its rarity, or look for a similar coin. :p

    For example.. I want to see if it's an earlier or later stage of the die break. I can also show the person examples from my collection such as..

    There is so much I would love to share but some people just make it so hard to do so :(

    Not necessarily, I like to look and see if I have one or how many of the same year, maybe to see if I have a later/earlier die stage that I can share. It all in the fun and communication.

    No grease as that removes raised areas. There’s a die chip in the bottom of the B and the area between the B and E is the start of another die chip. It’s known as a BIE error. Nice find!
