The 1956 D & S dual mintmark variety
is unique in the sense that the cent
contains both a D and S mintmark.  The
S mintmark, however can be very
difficult to see.   The S is located
between the 1 and 9 of the date.  The
bottom half of the S is often clearer
than the top half.  There is some doubt
as to whether this is truly an S
mintmark.  Coneca has recently delisted
this variety.

WDMM-001 stands for Wexler Dual
MintMark #1.  Do not confuse this coin
with WOMM-001.

An easy way to identify this variety is a
huge die break that runs from the left
wheat stalk down between the U and N
of UNITED.
