Have to agree with you there ttkoo, sometimes it is hard to see the picture clearly enough with all the lines in play. That , 2003 however, is a form of dye deterioration called design berm, I believe.

A design berm. I've heard the expression before, related to dirt mounds. So maybe some cases of MD may be this form of Die Deterioration. Very interesting, thanks gnome.

sticky beak? yeah there common on 2003 however yours is definitely a very nice and large area that has deteriorated and is rare. Also the obverse can sometimes have some extra bits.

I like it, it's a nice coin, in pretty good shape for near 20 years in the wild.
The ding on the obverse is likely a bag mark inflicted at the mint.
You are getting together a nice little collection of 5 cent oddities, well done.

Yes, this is definitely what would be known in Australia as a "cud" (everyone else calls them "die chips" unless they're touching the rim), and a fairly major one. Well, three cuds, if we include the piece on the left bar of the "5" and the piece between the leftmost claws. I'd also agree that with this many bits broken off the die, this is quite a deteriorated die. But I'm not seeing anything qualifying as a variety on the obverse.
