151. 10 SEN 1982 DIE CRACK PROGRESSION?

                     Just found the first die crack error coin, Coin A yesterday with my friend in his piggy bank. Quickly I asked him to own this coin as I remember I bought a quite similar crack error coin sometime ago. Could it be a die crack progression set? Both are dated 1982 and they could came from the same dies set. Upon close inspection, I think the crack on Coin A is situated exactly as crack on Coin B, but they are of different nature. The crack of Coin A seems heading a little bit south-west while on Coin B it headed straight bottom. Just my wild initial analysis. What do you think?

Salam mnfaj,
Ada dua andaian pada 2 spesimen ini.Andaian pertama kemungkinan coin B yg terjadi dahulu kemudian pihak kilang menyedari ada keretakan lalu membersih/meratakan semula die tanpa menukarnya dan hanya membaiki pada keretakan yg terjadi pada field kosong,keretakan yg terjadi pada huruf"A"agak sukar diratakan lalu dibiarkan sedikit dibahagian itu dan bila tempaan diteruskan terjadilah coin A.
Andaian ke2(yg popular),confirm ini adalah die progression dimana coin A yg terjadi dahulu.Bila keretakan die semakin memanjang lalu menempa coin B.(ini sekadar pendapat depankanta..hehe)
Syabas dan terima kasih banyak2 mnfaj,2 spesimen die crack yg ada tali persaudaraan...

Hi whycollect,
Ya, thanks to Nu for bringing this up. It's quite a long time since I first read his entry, that I wish to have a set of die progression. Now I have a set of two. Perhaps now I can wish for a set of 3 die progression stages?
Thanks for visiting. :)

Salam depankanta,
Agak sukar untuk mengesahkan, kecuali kita sendiri yang bekerja di kilang mencetak wang tersebut. Haha. Satu-satunya untuk mengesahkannya adalah dengan melihat sendiri prosedur mereka di kilang. Sayangnya saya diberitahu kini Kilang Wang BNM tidak lagi menerima kunjungan.
