These are nice coins.

The guitar one is harder to find. You can see that variety in the Errors and Variety section #12 and #13.

If you want to buy one of them, or any other 1 cent 1962 variety, I suggest you to contact Fiston2005.

I'll say like the 1948 A between denticles. If you take a look at this list, you'll get your answer for the second question:

I have a theory that the guitar and harp are the result of repetitive clashes of dies which are loose and slowly rotating. As the guitar continues to strike coins the damage caused by the clashes is worn away which results in the harp.

The first one came in at $255.00 CDN and the second one came in at $250.00 CDN.

This is also and up and coming variety.
