    would this be it, or would it be a very worn mint mark?

    Not sure what this penny is, but could it be what you're looking for? 1956d.jpg

    Could be ???

    but what I meant was a MS-64-67 RD Shadow D in this Grade.

    Well, it's my experince that if money is no problem, it isn't hard to find the coins you want.
    But if you, like me, are on a budget, then it's a bit more difficult to find nice specimens within your means. ;)
    With that in mind, I'd say the hardest coin for me to find in MS condition at a price I could afford was a 1947 Canada dollar.
    I'm also working on a Canadian type set and the prices of Victorian silver in MS is astronomical, to I may have to set my goal a bit lower to AU (still expensive!)

    Same for me, I haven't had trouble finding the coins that I want. I have trouble affording the coins that I want!

    Does anyone remember the Lincoln 1954S San Jose? It was
    diecrack or break from the tail of the 5 and connecting
    to the S. It looked like a " J." I still have not found one. :(

    I don't see anything on that 56-d cent. I like varieties you can actually see like a 1955 DD cent or a 42/41 dime.

    Morgan 1893s that did not look like it had been run over by a truck. That was a chore (without having to spend $100,000). :)
