    It is common in general. It is a chip from a misaligned die, creating a planchet error. Quite common in virtually all coins, and is not valuable in and of itself. Looks like a small cud, but is a die/strike issue.

    Those are IDB's. it is so easy to refer to them as cuds, but the real definition for a cud, is a die break at the rim. All other breaks that happen on the center of the coin are interior die breaks.

    IDB's or die chip are common on cents in the late 50's and early 60's.
    I found a 1960-D with two IDB's on both sides.

    Almost appears to be a cud, to bad they are not on the rim. Thanks for sharing, good luck

    Yes it's a die chip. Would also be correct to call it an small internal die break.

    That little corner is chipped off on the die. The top of that T looks a little strange, though, unless the lighting is playing tricks.
