All,

I assume that even small cud errors can have an effect on a coin's grade. Some of my 1960-D pennies (as I've shown before--thinking they were lg date over sm date) have cud errors on the "6".

I have uploaded one example.

Help please?

Thanks.

Bill

That looks more like a die chip on the 6. Cuds technically should involve the rim. And neither should affect the grade of the coin.

By definition, cuds are typically associated with a coin's rim. What you have--given the small photo posted--appears to be a die chip. Others will weigh-in.

A cud - as is a die chip - is a die error and has nothing to do with the grading of the coin. The die is damaged, then that is as struck for determining mint state & wear.

Agree this is a die chip. Neither this or a true cud should affect a coin's grade.

Thanks all--I confused the terms.

Best,

Bill

I disagree. all coining errors will impede a coin from achieving a perfect grade. It may not be important at MS65 or MS66, or even afftect that grade level, but when it comes to, let's say a proof 70 with a cud or die chip, or a MS silver eagle, the error stops it from being a 70 and holds it at a 69.

I for one have never seen an attributed/notated error coin slabbed as MS or Proof 70, best I've seen is MS or Proof 69.

A proof-70 coin is a different animal. I guess you could say a minor error won't affect the grade in 99% of cases.
