    Hello to all ,
    I have come across this 1956-D Lincoln wheatie with what appears to be a clashed die on the obverse under the date ? Any thoughts on what it is and any value on it would be fantastic !

    That's not a clash. It has nothing to do at all with a die clash.

    That's a planchet issue called a Lamination. It's a common issue on wheat cents.

    Here is some information

    It's a small Lamination but nothing to bring a huge premium.

    And it is not a mule neither.

    Here are 3 Lamination planchet issues from my collection. They are bigger and have a true premium.

    Very nice collection you have there ! I could swear those are letters on my coin though, just looks that way I guess.

    Yes to what Paddy said, it’s a small lamination. If you are seeing letters it’s just your imagination. And definitely not a mule cent.
