How rare are CUDS on proof coins?

5 posts in this topic

Cuds/die breaks it's all the same maybe a few buck premium but not much.

 

P.S. If you want more respect from people i would recommend you change your name and forget about the rude minute man (if he was polite he would have turned around before taking a pee) grin.gif

I've heard of lots of "impossible" errors on proofs, but cuds are extremely unusual. There is typically a long time between a die break and the loss of part of the die. The dies are checked much too frequently for this to occur often. I think I heard of one back in the late 70's, might have been a nickel.

Maybe he was being polite. He did turn around. He did not think a camera was invented yet ready to take his picture.

Also,there are not to many other words to choose from to describe the the event taking place.You think?

Thanks for the information. It does sound logical for a cud to be more rare than a die crack on proof coinage do to fact it takes loger for the die to come apart. I would guess either a die crack or a cud would be very rare nowadays since QC checks proof coinage more often and these errors shoud never leave the mint.The person packaging these sets I assume also check them individually for errors. Thanks for the thoughtfull input.
