153. straits settlements 1 cent 1920 die break


image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin
      I cherrypicked and paid only RM1 for this die break error coin last night. The cud on this coin looks similar with Dickson's., but of different year.

     Die break error happens when the die used to strike the coin has become damaged, probably due to fatigue and broken away.

   Local collectors often call this error as extra metal. Even though the cud does make this coin look as it is, but in reality, the weight of this coin is exactly the same as a normal one.
