Hey there CC members! Hope everyone is doing great!
I came across this "1985" Lincoln Memorial cent while sorting my coins.
I was wondering what type of error this would be considered as.

& Another question for you guys....
When sorting your coins, how do you sort them?
As I'm going through my coins I sort them by decades
& then later on I'll just go back and look through them....
I know everyone has they're own way of doing things - so let me hear your way.

Back to my coin - Here are the pictures I took.

It is called a Rim Cud, and a nice one.

I would bet that one is consider a die cud. Note the area even to the edge of the bust is affected. That is a nice find.
