If the Singapore coin and Canadian coin where minted at the same mint, then you could believe the coin just got stuck in a hopper etc, but as they were not, I would be more leaning towards a mint employee messing with us.

A U.S. Mint press operator apparently intentionally overstruck the five coins from a 1982-S U.S. proof set with their equivalent Panama business strike dies. On a majority of the five coins, both the date and mintmark of the under type are perceptible. Undoubtedly a unique offering.

Few (if any) 1943 cents are known with "medallic" die alignment, and what are the odds of this occurring when the coin was being struck over a previously struck coin from another country?

This assumedly unique error combination was presumably a product of mint employee mischief, although a visitor at the mint or a supplier of planchets could also be the culprit.(#6733) (Registry values: P1, N2)

All the coins in your Link are from a sale of the GEYER family's after him past, and was a Agency investigation and court debates. More, majority of the errors like this was from San Francisco Mint and dates of 1939 to 1944. The inside of the file I will not disclose.

Conclusion is if with out an outside intervention, those error are almost impossible. Some could happened but not on this scale we see today after more then 50 years, and this because we are drive of a law prescription of 50 years.

I have my opinion on and keep. In same time I could not say to any collector not to buy or sell. Personals choices.

Like stamps. You are OTTAWA, correct? So maybe you know 50-60 years ago, me and my friends we take scrap papers from back of the printing and use to make fire to protect from mosquitos when we fish. Today those papers will be a fortune.

All my best,
