The extra metal in the date is called a die chip. Probably a die crack on the reverse.

A Die Chip on the 5 of the date, but a very nice Retained Cud on the reverse, since I can see some movement of the piece! Very nice find! A keeper!

Kinda looks like both 5s in the date have die chips, with the second one being very small.

Thanks. Is a die chip similar to being filled in?

If the die is chipped in one or more places, then the coins that are struck with it can have those details filled in.

Now that I can zoom in it looks like the second picture has doubling in the wheat stalk. Is that doubling near the rim?

RW1010, I was wondering if you can get a nice clearer, non blurry close up of that Retained Cud you have, on the right wheat stock?

I agree with it now just being a Die Crack. No Retained Cud here, but it was so close!
