Straits Settlements 1899 10 Cents Coin Cud Error
A cud is, of course, the surface area that has been damaged & which resembles a blob.
However, the real question is, obviously, at least, to yours truly, is this a real error coin or it's a man-made one?
I got this coin from a pile that I bought and I only paid 1 Yankee Dollar for this coin - I obviously didn't purchase this coin as an error coin at a high premium. I am wondering if there's any error coin expert out there who could enlighten me if I am holding an error or a make-believe one as I am really a neophyte when it comes to trying to figure out a bona fide or fake error coin from the Straits Settlements' era.
