The King Of Coin Cuds

February 15, 2013

NGC has brought to our attention what can only be labelled as the King of coin cuds. Their article

"Amazing Cud Error With Matching Die Steel Revealed" by Tom Delory

follows the surprising story of a US 1975-D cent with a massive cud where the die has broken away and the coin was struck with an incomplete obverse die. The most awesome part of the story is that in the bottom of the mint bag the coin was found in was the broken away piece of die! They now sit side by side in a multi coin NGC slab. Absolutely amazing.
