Variety Summary

The area of the retained cud of obverse is defined by the die cracks from 4:00 and 4:30. Although this die state illustrates the retained cud at different depths within the die, I fully expect the area to be at equal depth during a subsequent die state. Since the obverse die is the hammer die, there is a possibility this cud will drop out completely due to gravity. Comments by David Poliquin.
