@medved, by clicking on your pictures, I was able to blow them up enough to see mostly what you are talking about.

For the 10 Kopek, I'm not sure what to call that section of rim that was not properly struck up as I haven't seen that before. It seems to be some sort of collar issue, but someone else will need to weigh in.

The first 20 Kopek coin had a little grease in the die when the coin was struck and this prevented the metal from flowing into the first letter C of CCCP. This grease-filled die error is more valuable when more of the design is missing.

The second 20 Kopek coin had a big glob of something between the die and the planchet when this coin was struck. This is another struck-through error and nicely distinct. I can't speak to how common this is with coins of the USSR.

For your ruble with the engraving error in numbering, this seems to be well known, for example on numista: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces90211.html Again, I'm not sure how common this might be.

Overall, you have some neat coins.

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

First one looks like a clipped planchet.
Middle two are some type of struck-through.
Last one is an engraving error or some type of design variation.

@tanman, just askin'--have you ever seen a clipped planchet where the only thing that is affected is the strike up of the rim? I haven't. Could it be some sort of collar error? I don't know...

Yes, although these minor ones are sometimes called rim clips.

You can see the Blakesley Effect on the opposite side of OP's coin.
