1996 toonie

Postby artist54 » Mon Jul 29, 2013 6:11 pm

I have a 1996 toonie with a cutout on the edge in the shape of a U, which cuts off part of the N and A in Regina. Not sure if it is manmade or an error. Tried looking it up but couldn't find anything.

How do I post a photo, I tried but it didn't come up? I've uploaded the pics but don't know how to get them posted.

Looks like it was done post-production. Worth 2$.

I have seen one other like this, where it was a legitimate planchet flaw (drill clip, or a hole drilled in the nickel sheet, possibly to move it from being rolled to the cutting mill?)

My gut instinct is that this is post-mint damage, but I would love to see this one in hand.... just to be sure
