    If you will notice the spot on the back is the underside of the cud.

    Nice cud find!

    Is the third digit an '8'? If yes, how much does the coin weight? It looks like a copper cent, so if it is, it must be from 1980 or 1981 if I see an '8' in there.

    That's what it is, A NICE BIG CUD ON A LINCOLN CENT...you didn't lie with the title. RETAINED CUD, IMHO

    Definitely a nice CUD. Great find.
    Keep up the hunt!

    I disagree. That is a plain old cud. A retained cud (struck by a broken die where the broken piece has not completely fallen away) will have very faint features in the cud. The cud on the OP's cent is just a blob because that portion of the die broke and fell off.

    edit

    After a closer look you may be correct. It does appear the cud is flattened out but I don't see any hint of the numerals of the date.

    So besides being a really cool mess, what size premium does that bring?

    it weights 2.5 grams and the third number looks to be a 8

    I could see that CUD bringing $17-25 on ebay. It is a nice size. CUDs on dated cents usually command a little more of a premium.

    I think this is a normal cud, not a retained one.
