I inherited a group of coins and within this group were a number of 1942 Tombacs. I noticed that a number of them had errors and the most prominent of these were the following two pairs.
Questions to the forum are - have I identified the errors correctly, are these common - any other information would be appreciated.
A Pair (2) 1942 Tombac 5 Cent Errors - they are identical and must have been minted very close to the same time. Each coin has 6 distinct Errors as listed below:
a. Filling (Extra Metal) - beside Kings forehead.
b. Filling (Extra Metal) - above Kings hair (to the front).
c. Filling (Extra Metal) - beside Kings hair - just below the letter X in REX.
d. Die Chip or Crack off off of the T in ET.
e. Die Chip or Crack off off of the D in IND.
f. Filling (Extra Metal) - beneath King's Portrait to the left
2. A Pair (2) 1942 Tombac 5 Cent Errors - they are almost identical and must have been minted very close to the same time. Each coin has a large Die Crack above the Beaver and below the 5 cent text, note the crack goes through the leaf Maple Leaf.
Each coin has smaller die cracks to the left and one coin has another die crack through the KG - please see the photos.
