    I don't think that's a cud. Looks like just a small die crack.

    It is my understanding that "Cuds on Coins" originally started with just cuds in mind, but eventually expanded their listings to include other die breaks.

    Personally, I don't have a problem with this. What I object to are the people who incorrectly use the term "cud" for all of the error coins mentioned on this site.

    You can't match it on cuds on coins because it's not a Cud. It's a die crack. Nice looking but not worth a lot. A cud must touch the rim. This is a Cud.

    I think you can.

    No one is says it's a cud. Cuds-on-Coins lists die cracks as well.

    Nice Cud there BTW!!

    The following is posted on the Cuds on Coins home page. Please read the last sentence.

    BROKEN DIE ERRORS

    ON UNITED STATES & WORLD COINS & TOKENS

    This site is a catalog of United Sates and World coins and tokens
    that were struck with a broken or cracked die.

    As of 04/30/2019 4,995 listings and over 12,000 images.

    Cuds-on-coins is designed to be a comprehensive visual database encompassing a wide range of die errors caused by brittle failure. Its original focus was “cuds”, a cud is a marginal die break; an error produced when a piece breaks off the edge of a die and involves the rim and at least a little bit of the adjacent field of design. The database has now been expanded to other types of broken die errors listed in the column to the left.

    I looked over the Cuds-on-coins site. It took me an hour to quit reading. Great resource.
