RM1.00 spilled ink (reverse)

Errors  on banknotes can include missing serial numbers, missing printing phases whether this be simulate or intaglio printing, ink faults (spilled ink), additional flaps, mismatched serial numbers or registration shifts.The above banknote is clearly a spilled ink on the reverse 


The above prefix of ZE is the normal ink printing but the other prefix of PC, the ink printing in darker and  beautiful.

20 cent 1987

Collecting error coins are very interesting. The more we look and search. the more error we may find. The same goes to me. Is thrill.  The above coin is quite interesting. The field is not smooth but I'm not sure whether is an error or not? Any suggestion?

50 cent 1973 tumbled coin

I've kept it for 1 year and tried to look for the error term for this coin. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any till I read in one of the blog ( Dickson Niew). Thanks Dickson.

20 cent 2005 Rotated Die plus Die Break and Die chip

3 in 1 error of 20 cent 2005 with degree of rotation approximately 90 degree, die break and die chip.

The left is normal rotation and the right is rotated at 90 degree

Another nice partial collar of 20 cent 2011

50 sen 2010 missing 'N' 'K' 'N' 'E'

The edge lettering should read BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA but this particularly 50 cent has missed few alphas and read BA_ _  _ _GARA.
It supposed read as "BANK" but 'N' and 'K' are missing and left 'B' and 'A'. 

It supposed read as "NEGARA" but 'N' and 'E' are missing and left 'G', 'A', 'R' and 'A'

20 cent 2005 Rotated Die

Rotated die coins usually occur in two different ways, the first being the mint employee installs the die incorrectly so the obverse and reverse do not line up properly when the coin is struck and the second is when the die becomes loose and then moves a little bit as each new coin is struck. Rare coins and modern coins known to exist with major die rotation (rotated reverse)of 90 degrees to 180 degrees.

20 cent 2005

The right is normal  die and the left is rotated

Taking into consideration of the rotation degree, the die was rotated at approximately 135 degree.

1 cent 2002 ( unknown error )

Sometime we don't realize what we got in our pocket or what we keep. This is 1 cent 2002 which I kept for quite sometime. Looking closely on it, then I realize the stigma is look like all dots. It may look like "Grease Filled Die", but I don't think is grease filled die. What is your comment?

Normal stigma

This is the one I meant. Look closely and compared it  with the above.

50 cent 2009 Double

Is quite difficult to understand  "Double Die" error as it has 8 classes and sometimes DD look like MDD, but true MDD is easy to identify. I'm still learning about it.

On 12th July 2011 around 11.00 am, I went to 7-E to buy my cigarette and the cashier gave me the balance of 70 cents ( 20 cent and 50 cent ). After taking my shower and my late dinner, I just checked my coins and surprisingly, this is what I got from my pocket.

50 cent 2009

Further checked, this is "Double Die". The most beautiful DD so far I got. What classes? I'm not very sure, but looking the DD, I quoted as DD class 1. May be the expert may elaborate it. So, all comments are most welcome.

A strong DD on the red arrow

Another strong DD on the stigma. 12 pairs or stigma.Normal stigma as below with 6 pairs

Die chip 1 sen 1998 (edge)

Die chip is common error. It happen on the obverse or reverse of the coins. Here I found 1 sen 1998 which "die chip" are on the edge of the coin. I never found any of such die chip since "die chip" by virtue will never happen on the edge. I might be right and wrong. What say you guys..?
