I work in a convenient store and run into all kinds of coins, recently acquired a Buffalo nickle with no date. Besides the point. It looks to have a clipped planchet but I'm not sure what to make of this .

    All just damage. Where the coin was hit, metal was moved.

    The metal covering the "LI" is so thin it's almost translucent. It displays alot of the characteristics I've read on cuds.

    I'm not saying there isn't a tremendous amount of damage but is it possible that it could be a cud error before it was so damaged?

    There is nothing that resembles a cud. Notice how all of the rim "anomalies" correspond to areas the edge is irregular. A cud results from the edge of the die breaking off. It is still struck a collar, so it will still be round, not irregular

    The picture is too dark for me.
