Hi guys,

I have this 1984 Lincoln Penny with a large error on the obverse rim (left). Can some explain what this is and how this happens?

Looks like a relatively large rim cud. Nice find!

A cud forms when the edge of the die breaks off.

Looks a little like a later stage of #44, but perhaps someone else can help confirm whether this cud is listed yet.

Nice find!

It's also slightly misaligned towards the K:4 position. I've seen rim cuds that were accentuated because of this. It's like the rim has cuds that really can't be seen unless the coin was struck with a misaligned die. Has anyone else noticed this?

Based on it's length, small depth and slightly jagged borders I'm leaning more towards a folded rim fin rather than a cud.

Still nice to find, either way.

I'm with Greasyfingers and HGK3. I'd think folded over rim fin.

I think I am gonna have to agree with HGK3 on this one. Can you get closer pics might be easer to tell. Also see if you can push it up using a toothpick.

What is K-4 position mean. I see the area in question, I'm just uninformed as to the K-4's lable.
Thanks

I'm sorry! I usually explain the terminology I use. The K:4 position would be the same as saying 4 O'clock position. The K followed by a number from 1 to 12 uses the numbers on a clock face as a reference to the position on the coin. Your coin's obverse die looks like it was shifted slightly towards that area.

While it could be a flattened rim fin as the others have said, I still think it's a rim cud. I have an 1881 nickel IIIó piece with almost exactly the same look. It's even shifted to the K:4 position. You can find images of my coin here. http://goccf.com/t/358518
