Description

This error has letters incomplete and it was common on coins of the 19th century.

Explanations

In the early days of mint, they lacked the technology of the mid 20th and 21st century. Since early 1960, everything is on the matrix, eliminating such defects. Often when a die was flawed, repaired then returned for striking. This caused some defects on the legend.
