Hi Everyone.
I am aware that ghosting is pretty common however does anyone know if you can tell whether other errors like those on the obverse are PMD or happened during minting? The 'cracks' on the left hand edge are just surface and again don't know if PMD or mint damage? Any comments are most appreciated.

The standard at the Perth Mint was generally poor in the post-war period.
All sorts of issues.
This coin has a planchet issue obverse and also something else of the left hand side as mentioned.
I don't know the cause but its fairly common.

Agree with echidna about Perth Mint in that period.

Hard to tell from the pic, but the 'crack' seems to be planchet flaw also maybe.

Are they 'lumps' (CUD) under the GE of GEORGIVS and between R : O?
It is a sad looking obverse in a good way (from someone who likes a good error)

Pics are too small to see much of anything.

No mate. They are 'cuts' that look like PMD wear & tear. If I enlarge the pics they lose focus but will try this.


thanks to you and echidna for the feed back. Most appreciated.

Hi all. Hope you don't mind me re hashing this.
I thought I would try again to see if any more definitive ideas could be put forward as to how the 'damages' have happened.
One is the stripe that looks like it was hit by a reeded coin yet the coin would have had to be the size of a cricket ball surely? If planchet/lamination error then how does that happen with that stuttered appearance rather than the 'scrapes' that are usually seen?
Then there are the squiggly lines. What would cause those? They are slightly scored into the surface of the coin. I haven't been able to find similar elsewhere as yet.
I am not worried whether the coin has financial value or not as for me it has (hopefully) educational value. The grade of the coin would be VG to F at best I would think so apart from the interest in the errors it has no real monetary value.
Thanks for all the inputs people. Sincerely appreciated.

A better pic is needed.
Way too fuzzy.

There is a scratch above RGI and the other issue (the stripe) is a planchet flaw/streak.
Very common.

Thanks echinda. The 'scratch' is also below the E in DEF and cuts through a couple of the denticles. Also above the I and D in VID. Any idea of what would do that? Not that deep but pretty deep for a scratch. More a shallow gouge?

It could be struck through a wire but I'm not sure how to tell a strike through from a scratch in this case.

That crack by Georges name appears on a lot of pennies on various years.
