    Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my 1955 double error penny. There appears to be a die crack at the top of Lincoln's skull, just above the eyebrows (highlighted by a circle.) Also, the left "5" in the date 1955 appears to be filled a little in-between the straight line and the rounded line. Please tell me what you think.

    what your describing would be a die crack and a die chip, very common for 1950's wheaties...

    Cracks and chips are common and considered part of the normal minting process, they are not really "errors".
