    So I'm new to coin collecting and roll hunting, but have been looking at took after roll of 2019 pennies and they are all Denver minted. They are in terrible shape. Lots of cuds, dye breaks, dye cracks all on the same coin. I'm seeing this over and over. What could be going on?

    Me too, I've recently been awarded the time to go through my savings, 1980's were a bad mint quality and I agree. new coins are ugly and flat. I sometimes wonder if my 50-60-70 junk is worth saving. Like the old cliche says " they dont make them like that
    anymore" . They will never make them like IKE again either.

    Do you know what a cud actually is. And it is Die breaks.. Not dye.

    Show us some examples of what you have found. A true cud would be desirable to a mint error collector.

    Ok so I looked up cud and no cuds, looks like blistering maybe? Die cracks? It's on every single penny I see. Can't find one without looking like these. Sorry if the pistures are not that great, I don't have a good setup for pics and my microscope doesn't take pics. 2019-12-14 11-48-18.jpg 2019-12-14 11-48-38.jpg 2019-12-14 11-49-12.jpg 2019-12-14 11-49-30.jpg 2019-12-14 11-49-52.jpg 2019-12-14 11-50-6.jpg 2019-12-14 11-50-55.jpg 2019-12-14 11-51-38.jpg 2019-12-14 11-51-53.jpg 2019-12-14 12-8-41.jpg

    Not seeing any die breaks which is a raised line, because the crack in the die gets reversed on the coin.

    I'm not seeing a die break or a die chip.

    2019-12-14 14-27-17.jpg I'm terrible with these pics. I tried to zoom into some of the areas, here. 2019-12-14 14-27-28.jpg 2019-12-14 14-28-54.jpg

    That is split plate or linear doubling. NAV, No Added Value. I can't tell from the photos.

    I guess I am really wondering why I have rolls and rolls of these damaged coins. Could it be that they were stored improperly? There isn't one good coin in the last 10 rolls I have looked through. Or is 2019 just the year of the bad cent?
