I would like to know how this could have happened ...any ideas please? My thoughts are that there wasn't enough metal to fill the die..

not really, maybe not a grinder, a clearer close up would help. but I often find coins with parts worn off that appear to have been scraped or ground down by perhaps being stuck in a coin counter?
but like I said a better close up would show if thats the case.

Looks like the die was filled when struck. Havent seen one there before. The error expert aka nancy will probably know better.

I see quite a lot of this, I assume it's from an oil/grease filled die, but I don't know that for certain. It's often noticeable on the rev of 10c coins on edges of the '10'.

Sometimes the coins do look as though they've been 'scraped' with something very rough.

Any other theories?
