Where exactly do you see the Die Chips? You have done 1/2 of what is needed for photos. Please point out where you see the Die Chips, as I do not see them in your photos. Just one other thing it is a Die not Dye.

Thanks. Here are the photos with indications to the potential die chips. After looking closer I was also wondering about what looks to my inexperience, minor extra or missing metal on the top left of “L & F” of “half”.
Note: my editing software blurred the second set of pictures, the first are not as blurry.

Die chips are too common to bother with.

Save Yourself time, effort, and disappointment...don’t learn the coin hobby backwards. 😊

Looking for random anomalies on coins and hoping they match up to something collectable will take you a lot more time, wasted effort, and disappointment repeatedly finding out you have nothing but post mint damage.

Spend some initial time at places like error-ref.com, doubleddie.com, varietyvista.com, conecaonline.org, coppercoins.com etc. to find what actual and collectable coin errors look like.

A good way to start is, for instance, separate a bunch of pennies by date. Go to varietyvista.com and, date by date, use the reference there to see what errors are known for that specific coin/mint mark. Look for those specific errors/varieties using the pictures provided. After doing this for awhile you will KNOW what an actual error looks like and not have to waste time on face value and damaged coins.😊
