Is this a "cud" above the "0"?

   The bar above the "zero" and possibly some of the other blobs near the rim of this 1960-D nickel are die chips, which are also sometimes referred to as "rim cuds". They are probably too small to be classified as full-fledged "cuds." These types of die chips are very common on U.S. coins of the 1950s and early 1960s, and there was once a fad of collecting some of them, but they are too common to have ever been worth much and carry little or no premium today. See the following topic for a similar phenomenon on Lincoln cents of that era:

As Sandon indicated the coin has only minor "rim cuds" that don't really add value.  It has to be a pretty substantial cud (like the attached) to add any value to the coin.

See this error-ref.com webpage for more info on varous cuds, including rim cuds about 2/3 down the page ... https://www.error-ref.com/?s=Cud
