What is wrong with the ear?

The ear has a shadow, as if the planchard shifted while it was being struck.

It would appear as if 2016 is going to be an interesting year for errors. I will keep an eye out for any more.

regards Robert

It is nice to have eagle-eyed young collectors like you interested in modern issues. Some recent varieties spotted by other collectors are now acknowledged by NGC on their slabs. A collector friend of mine in Durban, Anthony Govender, is one of them with quite a few feathers in his cap!

Also, varieties like the pregnant Springbok and the tagged ear on the silver R1 are nothing new, but some collectors,  who like Anthony for example, bring this under the attention of the grading companies.

They (say NGC)  then give "official" recognition to the varieties, and that is wonderful.

Keep up the good work Robert.

It brings me much joy and excitement when I pull change out of my pocket and something unique or different jumps out at me. Thanks for the compliment Pierre.

Today's coins of the day come from a sweet bowel kept at the front desk in our office.

They were tasty...

Good day collectors,

Today's coins of the day are two toned pieces.

The silver krugerrand I placed in a velvet bag a over year ago in storage. It's taken on slight purplish brown toning.

The second coin, a 1942 tickey for which the toning was totally unintentional. It was given as a gift and was silver white at first, but after months in storage, it developed beautiful leopard spots toning. The but the bag had staple holes in it, which is how air got to the coin.

Looking at the photo now,  I see a greenish hue which I haven't noticed previously, so I'm guessing that bag must be pvc and should be replaced. 

regards Robert

Hello, it looks like a normal silver rand. I can't say I notice anything different.. I'm not sure if it would be considered proof like because of the mirror like surface.

These normally trade for about R100 these days. Sometimes a little more.

regards Robert.

Good day

Today's coin of the day is a shiney new Rand I got from my change from the store this morning. Nice frosting on the devices.

This one might go into my file, it might just go back into circulation.

regards Robert

Here you can see a different die was used for the reverse on the 1995.

Impressive, did this come from circulation? It looks as though planchard shifted prior or during striking?

Hi Robert, it is a circulated coin and from my pocket change. It was also struck off-centre, so well spotted. I would imagine that there will be more varieties given the amount of coins that were struck up to now, so something to keep an eye out for.

Regards
