Small cud errors are nice if you plan on being an error collector. I personally love all errors, and sometimes pay a small premium to get one I can't seem to find for myself.

Bigger cuds will usually get a slightly higher price depending on the coin, where it is and type of cud etc.

I also collect die cracks & laminations among other types of errors.

Hi, I noticed these 2 that I had received in change that looked different from the rest.. the one with the funny bit on the end of the 2 is a 1968 one. the other one has a few chips in it but down the bottom of the water ring it looks deformed.

to the CCF.

Sorry, but both coins appear to be PMD. Keep looking and you'll be sure to find a keeper.

I came across this 1969 20 cent piece in my change this afternoon. You can clearly see the indentation in the base of the 2 without any magnification.

It appears to be factory formed as there is no pressed out metal below the indentation. What are your thoughts, is this an actual error coin and is it valuable like my 1966 wavy baseline?

I see what you mean in terms of no pressed out metal.
Another example would be required though before saying not PMD.
A man who tells lies merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.

The Australian 10 Cent and 20 Cent coins of the late 60's and early 70's often have very weak edge milling.
It is very easy to make fake errors with these coins by completely removing the edge milling and burnishing the tooling marks. There is an extremely tiny loss in weight, well inside the remedy tolerance standards.
These sort of fake errors are very difficult to detect, and for this reason, I always steer very clear of them.

I believe there is a rare 20c error called a swan 2 where part of the bottom of the 2 is missing metal but also at the neck of the 2 there is also metal missing, never seen one only read about it, maybe here.

G'day all, thought I would share this pic of a 1980 20cent piece . Had a look at Renniks Error Book and it has a reference to a 'Blob' error .
This blob is raised and all on its own next to the zero.
Is this a 'blob' error ?,any one seen a 'blob' error?


a couple of closer pictures

Nice find - I haven't seen one like that before.
Small die chips are not uncommon but that's quite sizeable.

Thanks for your comment MrT, Do you have a mowhawk?
Maybe a lot of necklaces?
Can you confirm it is a 'BLOB' error coin?
Really hoping it is.
