Here are some piccies that show some different views of the Feather Cuds that occur on the 10c reverse. They come in all sizes, positions and a lot of different years.
I'll start with a normal 10c, just to show you where to look for these cuds.
#1- The cud is just beginning to develop:
#2 - A little further to the left
#3 - A bit bigger
#4 - A bit longer
#5 - A separate small one further to the left
#6 - The 'Fat' cud
7 different coins from different years are shown here.
The years I have with these cuds on them are:
1981, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2008.
They probably occur on other years, I just don't have them.
1999 are by far the most common, and that's the only one I've seen with the 'Fat' cud.
This is a 1990 coin with 2 x cuds in the feathers plus 2 cuds on the 1.
A friend is a present you give to yourself.
