When is a rim cud not a rim cud

5 posts in this topic

Hi .. i have just received a new coin for the collection and when i looked at the reverse i instantly thought nice 2 rim cuds .. but under closer inspection i am questioning this ..my understanding is that if it is a true cud you should not see any of the die stamp on it .. as you can see in my picture you can clearly see the impression of the denticals on both of the "rim cuds" on this coin ?




so the question is was there a couple of extra bits of metal on the planchet ? or what


there is a striking error to the Obverse of this coin .. please see pictures on my shield Nickel thread

The best i have found so far is




there are several different reasons why cuds occur. it would be virtually imposable for me to describe each and every cause.
