115. Malaysia 50 Sen 2000 Die Crack Error


image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin
image 2: crack line on the obverse
image 3: crack line on the reverse
   A minor crack line on the obverse of the coin. Perhaps there are more lines due to cracks that cannot be seen with naked eyes. I need a microscope!

   Wait! From the scanned image of the coin, I notice there is a crack line on the reverse too! See image 3.

    After being pointed up by Mr Dickson, I now realized that the crack is in radial form. Most die cracks that I have encountered before is either radially inward or outward.

Hi Mr Dickson,
Thank you so much for the comment, if according to you this is quite not usual type of error, then I must say I must be very happy then. When I first discovered this coin, I am thinking to discard them as the crack is very minor, but then, now I should not think only about the severity or degree of the error, but the nature of the error. Thanks Mr Dickson for your guidance.
