Coin's edge is the most difficult part of a coin to check for irregularities.

Often, especially for more than 100 coins to check, I did not bother to look at the edges.

Flip, flip and sometimes those small edges hurt my eyes.

According to Ned Rorem, humour is the ability to see three sides to one coin.

In our case, we need to look at the third side of the coin to get its humour side. Hehe. That's not humorous at all.

But when talking about irregularities, or errors at the third side of the coin, I managed to collect several specimens.

Shown below is my collection of partial collar error coins with the new books that I bought using book vouchers given by Government.

I am pleased to find out my other collectors friends are also aware of this error.

I think this is the most beautiful partial collar I have ever seen. Unlike Ned Rorem, I see both humor and beauty.

Hi mnfaj,
Glad to see you have found quite a number of these partial collars.
Wonder why they are most common among the 20sen hibiscus series coins?
Thanks a lot for sharing :)

Salam mnfaj,
Betul kata whycollect,mengikut pemerhatian depankanta pun kebanyakan syiling partial collar yg dipamirkan adalah dari deno 20sen siri bunga raya.Mungkin pelarasan mesin antara ketiga2 die pada syiling 20 sen mudah "lari" dan menghasilkan syiling2 begini.
Depankanta sedang cuba lengkapkan partial collar semua deno untuk perkongsian bersama..
Terima kasih banyak2 mnfaj..

On a side note, Pirate Latitudes by Micheal Crichton is great read!

Hi whycollect,
Thank you for hopping in. Yeah most of them were found among the Bunga Raya series, particularly of year 2001. But recently one of my friend had discovered one dated 2011! :D

Probably they did not take care much about the collar die?

Thank you again whycollect. :)

Hi Jay,
I know it already just by looking at the author's name. :D

Hi depankanta,
Terima kasih atas pandangan dan lawatan. Ya betul tu, saya tidak berkesempatan untuk mengumpul jenis "partial collar" ini untuk denominasi yang lain. Harap depankanta dapat kumpulkan dan berkongsi dengan kami semua, baru kami memburu dengan lebih serius. Hehe :)

Terima kasih sekali lagi. :)
