109. Malaysia 50 Sen 2009 Doubled Die

      I try to put some distance between me and error coins, but apparently error coins miss me too much! Haha. Found this doubled die in my loose coins. Now I am only need to find a 1 sen and 10 sen to complete my Malaysia Bunga Raya series doubled die coins!

    In my opinion, this is a Type V doubled die. A pivoted hub doubling, which occurs when the working hub is not properly aligned with the working die during the hubbing process. It is quite similar with Class I (Rotated Hub Doubling) but with the pivot point is located around the rim.

    The doubling on this coin is strongest on one side of the coin, which is in this coin's case is at the 1 o'clock position, and having no doubling at the opposite direction, the 6 o'clock direction.

   Looking at the strength of the doubling, I think this is quite a monster!
