145. 10 sen malaysia 1981 die clash obverse and reverse unc

image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin

image 2: die clash mark with their respective pairs
   
        Die clash error seems quite common, especially with our old 10 sen parliament series. This is the first specimen that I have encountered in uncirculated condition. Usually die clash marks on both obverse and reverse follow directly the mirror images of their respective opposite side. But on this specimen I notice that clash die marks happen on a rotated mirror image of their respective opposite side, as indicated on image 2. But still this coin does not possess any degree of die rotation error? Could it be the clash of the two dies happened in rotated position, then later were being altered back to its original position? Images are clickable in order to view it in a higher resolution.

Hi mnfaj,
Interesting die clash.
Ya, you brought up an interesting point here.
Though we too noticed these die clash are quite common among the ten sen coins, we didn't realise this rotated feature until you brought it up.
Thanks for sharing.
You are very observant :)

alam mnfaj.
tahniah atas pertemuan syiling 10 sen parlimen yg error ini. sememangnya bagi keluaran pertama siri parlimen untuk kita mendapatkannya amat sukar sekali berbanding siri kedua.
apa pun terima kasih dgn perkongsian special ini.
