Cuds on Coins is the premier source of designations for die break cud errors and JC Stevens just added new die break designations for 1973-S and 1972-S die breaks.

I'm still playing with my new camera set up and can better show cameo effect now, but still have more learning to do!

Big thanks to Mike @Byers for the the 72-S photos and @rmpsrpms for pointing me to JC's site!

More proof cuds can be added but from what I've seen the 73-S below is the largest die break cud for proof JFK halves so far!

    They really are amazing! The 73-S is the largest proof cud I've seen so far. There are some competitive business strike cuds for size. An interesting thing about proof cuds as well is that there aren't very many of the coins given how they are produced.

    It's great that JC is cataloging both business strikes and proofs. :+1:
