    Holy Moley but there’s a lot of abbreviations that get tossed around. DDD, RMD, CUD, MOUSE...(that’s a joke for we old enough to remember the Mickey Mouse club from the 50s). It’s a challenge to keep them straight. OP drove me nuts for the longest time until I figured out (I hope) that it’s Original Poster.

    Any way to get a chart or table or glossary to help we neophytes understand what the heck you guys are saying???

    Or is there one already and I haven’t observed it?

    I did a contest here some years ago for this. Maybe someone can find it and post. It came out quite interesting. For the life of me I can't remember if I shared the winners list.

    Mouse refers to a large die chip that forms on the top of the head of several different years and varieties of large cent from 1817 to 1819.

    1817 N-3 with "mouse". Mouse is below star number 8.
