    Found this one in circulation many years ago and just found it again. I know it's worth a few bucks but I don't know how to determine a value for it. The back is interesting too, opposite of the front cud.

    A nice cud. Congratulations but not worth a lot.

    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.

    That price was for a certified MS-65

    Your Cud nickel, although nice, is not a Gem MS-65, imo.

    As is (raw), it's still worth $25-$35 or thereabouts.

    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.

    That's a big cud, wow, lucky you. Thanks for sharing it.

    I do have a question unrelated to the cud (which is impressive). Is that a white haze on the outside of the nickel or some other type of toning? On the picture it almost seems like a light dust covering - especially since it looks like the cud somehow shaded some of the dust from landing.

    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.

    Hah, ok. I was rather impressed at the even coating. :D Thanks for clarifying (as it were)

    That back-opposite is extreme die deterioration. Very nice-looking error coin. Personally, I wouldn't let it go.

    With a cud that large on the obverse (and it does look odd to me in general) I would expect more of the reverse design to be missing do to metal flow into the cud. Anyone else feel that way?

    Jersey magic man, the issue I see on the reverse is in the word UNITED, It is exactly the opposite of the obverse cud. Good question.

    A couple of mine
    The thinner penny has more design missing (I know it’s a larger CUD) EAC0AC5C-E9BA-4548-9563-52994FA4CEA0.jpeg 9596A6F1-B533-4159-871E-78972B6DBDA7.jpeg 22833971-223E-4316-9F56-10EC6E7E93AE.jpeg 1157951C-6C1B-4981-9C29-3E7D10EFDD2D.jpeg
    No so much on harder, thicker coins
