After opening many sealed bags of coins from the Royal Canadian Mint, from 1-cent coins to silver dollars, I was always amazed at the high ampount of coins that had fingerprints on them...

Then, I saw this photo from the Royal Canadian Mint postcard series... imagine the errors they must have plucked out...
