83. Malaysia 50 Sen 1983 Die Clashed Error Obverse and Reverse

image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin

image 2: silhouettes of the coin motifs due to clashed die



    This time I really need help from my fellow collector friends. Is this a die clashed error coin, both on reverse and obverse of it? The obverse shows some sign of die clashed error, similar to common die clashed error of 10 sen parliament series, but unfortunately it is not so heavy. I suspect the faint lines is a part of the number "50" when the clash of the dies happen.  And interestingly after inspecting its reverse, I can see some faint, but visible silhouette of parliament building on the reverse, as shown in image 2.

   This is my birthday gift from my best friend. He suspected that this is a fake coin and refused to give me because he thought I am not into fake coins. If only he knew that I was longing for this coin. Hehe.

Hi mnfaj,
Haha, we are not professional photographers.
But noticed that the die clash markings can be more distinctly shown if the coin is being photographed at an angle.
Thanks alot for sharing :)
