If you will notice the spot on the back is the underside of the cud.
That is a VERY nice cud. Congrats!
Nice cud find!
Is the third digit an '8'? If yes, how much does the coin weight? It looks like a copper cent, so if it is, it must be from 1980 or 1981 if I see an '8' in there.
That's what it is, A NICE BIG CUD ON A LINCOLN CENT...you didn't lie with the title. RETAINED CUD, IMHO
Definitely a nice CUD. Great find.
Keep up the hunt!
I disagree. That is a plain old cud. A retained cud (struck by a broken die where the broken piece has not completely fallen away) will have very faint features in the cud. The cud on the OP's cent is just a blob because that portion of the die broke and fell off.
After a closer look you may be correct. It does appear the cud is flattened out but I don't see any hint of the numerals of the date.
So besides being a really cool mess, what size premium does that bring?
it weights 2.5 grams and the third number looks to be a 8
I could see that CUD bringing $17-25 on ebay. It is a nice size. CUDs on dated cents usually command a little more of a premium.
A retained cud will show displacement of the die face that has separated, but it will retain all the design features of the die. It's a piece of the die that has broken away from the rest of the die, but has been "retained" in place. This is not a retained cud.
I think this is a normal cud, not a retained one.
If they could only get one of them Wisconsin cows to chew a cud ...
No cows, only Montana bears............that migrate to Alaska.:sniper:
