    A cud is a break on the rim that extends into the field.

    Sorry, but all you have is circulation damage. It might be a good idea if you learned more about the minting process before you start looking for errors.

    Or ask first if they are actually Mint errors or not.
    Both of the word LIBERTY took hits outside of the Mint

    As someone pointed out to me once, he simply responded PMD
    I had no clue what that meant at the time, but I do now, and proffer that as my opinion of the coins posted by the OP. :D

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Welcome to Coin Talk. My strongest recommendation for anyone becoming interested in collecting error coinage is to listen to Chris in post #2 above. Learn as much as you can about the die making and minting process. You tube has some info like clips from the "how it's made" type of TV shows (STAY AWAY from the "get rich from pocket change" stuff . many are loaded with inaccurate info) and you can learn a lot from reading the archives here.

    The more you know about the minting process, the easier it will be to sort out the PMD and corroded coins. In actuality, even finding minor low value errors, such as clashes, cracked dies, and filled dies is not that common. If you're seeing 1 or 2 errors per searched roll, there's a good chance they aren't errors.

    When you think you have something, post it like you did (nice pics BTW). NOthing wrong with newbie questions, but when you see the same person posting the same type of damaged coins on a regular basis, they tend to get ignored over time (I'm not referring to you)

    BTW: sometimes you'll get responses that a short and to the point, with sarcasm thrown in. Don't take it personally. Some of these people are extremely knowledgeable, but don't always have patience. When you see almost daily posts about finding a 1969-S Doubled Die, it's hard not to be a little snarky. Best of luck
