Looking for Latvian and Estonian pre-euro rolls (1991-2013). Maybe somebody can help?
At local markets, I didn't find anything.
I need full rolls or opened rolls, or maybe mint sets.
I have a few rolls for swap.
Just, for example, I will add a couple of photos

Once again collegaues. I found this article, so...

Types Of Clipped Planchet Error Coins
Clipped planchets represent a separate type of error coin. But those who collect clipped planchets recognize these 4 distinct types:

Straight-edge clips There's a straight edge on the coin where it was mis-cut.
Curved clips Due to a crescent-shaped area of missing metal, the coin has a concave curve-shaped edge.
Irregular clips The trailing edge of the metal strip appears ragged, giving the coin an irregular edge.
Bowtie clips There are 2 curved clips on opposite sides of the same clipped coin, creating the appearance of a bowtie. a most unusual type of error.


More specifically, these are the 4 possible outcomes an explanation of each of the 4 types of clipped planchet error coins:

Straight-edge clips These feature a straight edge on one side of the coin.
Curved clips The error here is a crescent-shaped miscut on either one or two sides of the coin.
Irregular clips An irregular clip shows the straight-ish but ragged edge unfinished leading or trailing end of the sheet of metal from which the blank is cut.
Bowtie clips These boast 2 curved clips on opposite ends of the coin.

So which type is mine? :-) if we talking about 10 copecks 1988?

Terminology Specimen Prooflike

Good Day. I have a question regarding terminology.
As it is described in your glossary, The SP (Specimen) Term used to indicate special coins struck at the Mint from 1792-1816 that display many characteristics of the later Proof coinage. Prior to 1817, the minting equipment and technology was limited, so these coins do not have the "watery" surfaces of later Proofs nor the evenness of strike of the close collar Proofs. PCGS designates these coins SP.
I found another explanation of the SP in another source:
The specimen is used to describe any coin produced to a particularly high standard of finish. Before 1970, most British proof coin sets were described and issued as specimen sets, despite the fact that they would now be called proofs.
In recent years the Royal Mint has started to produce especially good versions of its uncirculated coins which it calls specimens. These are ordinary uncirculated coins which have been handled individually and with greater than normal care, to avoid most, but not all, of the surface blemishes which occur due to bulk handling.

As I understand this term can be defined like "better than usual business strike, but this is not a proof"

So the questions are:
What the difference between SP (specimen) and PL (prooflike), if both of these terms are better than usual strike, but not a proof?

What the difference between modern coins (not only US coins) which has grades SP and PL?

How I can define my coin?

Thank you for the answer, I know everything about this types of errors and how common they are. I don't need a tutorial :-)
I'm just asking for English translations of these errors, for example like: "double die", "die crack", etc

What does the edge look like? Bear in mind that because of how coins are mass produced, it is actually not rare at all to see a variance of 0.5 grams for non precious metal coins. I would not be surprised if this is the case of Thai 10 baht.


Edge is plain, but IMHO this is can't say to us anything - we don't know which step of production it was.
For example, I had before planchet of 2 Latvian lati bimetal with inscription how it is must be, but the edge was not ribbed like it must be
