1927 $2.5 Indian Head Gold Quarter Eagle NGC AU58 Retained Die Cud Mint Error
A retained die cud error is an interesting error where the coin is struck with broken die that has not yet fully separated and broken apart. Unlike a rim to rim die crack, when you have a retained die cud error, the rim to rim crack is present, but there is also a shift in the design of the retained portion of the design within the crack. On this error, you can see a slight shift of the design within the break which is characteristic of a retained die cud. To best see this movement, look at the fraction bar of 2 1/2 and you can see a clear shift in the fraction bar from one side of the break to the other.

Please note that the NGC label does note reference the mint error, though the error is clearly present on this example. The coin has a nice bright golden color with excellent luster.

There is just the slightest touch of wear present on the highest points of the design, though it is extremely minor and difficult to identify.
