Clipped Planchet

1971

In 1971 the coins for circulation and for sets were made at two different mints.  This resulted in small details being different between the mints.  The The main difference between the Set and Circulating versions is the font used so the numbers on the date are different.

Koruru Errors

These errors have been listed a few times over the years including the Numismatic Journal November 1985.  Since then they have been forgotten about and not well known.  These errors appear in 1975, 1976, 1977, 1979. This error was pointed out to my by Paul B and since then I have been trying to find more coins with this error.
