I find it difficult to pass up a cud

Didn't notice when I hit the buy it now that "15B" was hand written on the back of the 1891 o in a PCGS 15 holder. Was not mentioned in the auction listing, Maybe cuds aren't a big thing anymore?

Congrats - Great Pickup
Cuds will always be a "Big Thing" because they represent the physical termination of the die's service. Normally, the mint will immediately pull a broken die from service in order to preserve quality control standards. Full blown cuds are exceedingly scarce and valuable on silver dollars.
The pictured 1891 O Morgan $ displays a retained cud .

Really nice find. Were there other areas on the coin or is this the only one?
