    Some kind of damage. But only the person who did it would know how it was done.

    Definitely a keeper. Large "cud", though most true cuds are "blank", and possible strike through (or whatever its called when a part of the anvil image is seen on the hammer side). But the "castles" or "lighthouses" are very hard to explain. Perhaps hit with another die?

    This coin has been severely damaged by PMD. I'm still trying to figure out if you're joking with your reply...

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Cuds are blank because a piece of the die is missing. It is not a retained cud. It is simply a damaged coin. It was pressed against something resulting in the flattening of the design and transfer of another image. It's called a vice job. You can also see the flattening on the reverse.
