cud
An area of a coin struck by a die that has a complete break across part of its surface. A cud may be either a retained cud, where the faulty piece of the die is still in place, or a full cud, where the piece of the die has fallen away. Retained cuds usually have dentil detail if on the edge, while full cuds do not.

The term CUD only applies to coins that have been struck with a die broken at the edge (defect seen at the rim of the coin) rather than a break in the surface, e.g., die chip, die crack, etc.

I think I may have seen folcan99's die chip error illustrated in the Charlton catalog.
