Is this a die crack or something different?

    It is a die crack and also looks like the beginning of a cud.

    It looks like around 1:00 to just about 6:00 was ready to break of the die.
    So I'd this how a cud is formed. A piece of the die cracks off forming a cud?

    @Watchtower ... A cud would form if the piece of the die breaks off, and another coin was struck... the result would be a lump of blank metal, at the rim, called a cud. Cheers, RickO

    That would be one giant cud. I wonder if it made it that far or if they pulled the die right around this time.

    Great die crack soon to be a cud if not removed. I like it.

    The coiner must have caught it and removed the die before it had a chance to become a Cud.

    There are no known Cuds from that date, at least not that collectors have.

    I picked it up because I liked it. It's not really something I collect though.
    I did do a little research before I bought it and saw that no cuds are known.
    It's pretty close I'd say. Do you know if there are any other similar known?

    Watchtower, what are you using to photograph? Pretty decent pics.

    Nice die crack. There are probably more examples struck from that die out there.

    Right now I am using Samsung A13 phone. Sometimes I can get excellent images other times not so good.
    I think copper is easier to image than silver. Less reflection.
