Thanks Nut. I did some more digging and here's a sale (just a month ago)for the same cud error from Heritage Auctions (Note that there are many cud varieties for the 1983 P:
Not gonna make me rich, but a lot more than I thought it could be worth.
That is an insane price. At least you got the idea, you’re not going to retire.
Your Cud nickel, although nice, is not a Gem MS-65, imo.
As is (raw), it's still worth $25-$35 or thereabouts.
Still, a nice piece of change...
Thanks Sidney - The sale I showed is actually an MS63 so they're a bit more comparable than you thought. Still, as a raw coin it's not worth what a slabbed coin is. I still think you're on the mark with your price range of $25 to $35.
Collecting Nut, I completely understand that there are very few coins that are valuable enough to make one "rich", and further that almost all coins of that caliber are already slabbed and in the hands of very wealthy collectors. I'm in no manner taking your thoughts as a troll, but just wanted to mention it because so many on Cointalk do assume that every novice is trying to get rich, and do harshly troll them.
I've not seen that on a nickel before.
Though I had not noticed it, I do think I see what you mean. There is some dirt on the edges of the cud itself, but I think the the haze seems to be a photographic illusion. When I look through a loupe or under the microscope I do not see it. My best guess is that the microscope lighting caused it in the posted pic's.
Thanks for clarifying (as it were)
Looks right to me
The thinner penny has more design missing (I know it’s a larger CUD)
No so much on harder, thicker coins
INTERESTING! God is still there, but the "Trust" is missing.
