can you see the edges of the 9?
Worn die, not true doubling
Minor die cracks
Here are some good reference sites. Error ref has lots of excellent info
here is a better picture. so is it like a md or worn die?
So what do you have.
I have a die chip and to me it looks like a doubling on the 1,9,6 towards to the east
That would be called a rim to rim die crack. A cud only occurs on the rim. As it grows from the damaged die still in use it forms a blob of metal. Do a search on the Internet for cud’s and you’ll easily the difference.
is this considered a cud?
@ARBIE SANTOS This is not my coin nor is it my photo but it should help you to understand what a cud is.
See how the metal reacts? A cud will always be along the rim as in this photo. A cud is a die crack on the rim. As it grows in size from the die being used it gets larger. The metal flows into the crack and always fills it in. It looks like a blob or smooth, raised metal. It acts like lava and covers everything in its path.
