1953 NSS Obv. Dei Gratia Doubling

Standard 3 line NSS 5 cents with strong doubling on DEI GRATIA. Doesn't appear to be die chatter, most likely new re-cut die strike.

Re: 2021 Bluenose Struck Through 18 coin sequence?

Something I have done over the years, when the new coins came out each year, I would buy a master pack for the store, go through the rolls looking for that type of error. Every so often you found something. Lots of fun, enjoy!

2010 1 Cent incomplete clip

Obviously this coin got caught in something! My question, is it post production garage job or the real thing. You can see where the pressure has broken the obverse surface. Full unc red. Any thoughts?

1978 1 Cent Reverse struck through Grease on 100% of flan.

This is the most complete covering of grease that i have ever seen. 100% of the reverse's surface is rough and the strike is the complete surface.

1964 Obverse die crack

This die crack is very slight but runs from the 4th leaf in her wreath to the bottom of her shoulder. Since it is so light, the break would disappear after some circulation. The coin in the picture is a MS-63-64Image

1952 George VI Cent with Orange SkinReverse

This is a 1952 George VI cent with pebbling on the reverse top part of the coin. I found a reference to this as a surface material such as grease or other liquid being on the die or the planchette.

1952 George VI Cent MS-64 RED w/ Rev. Die Breaks

From am original roll, the reverse has die breaks running from C in Canada to 9, and then from 9 to 1 and from 9 to leaf. You also have a light die break C in cent to E and then E to N.
You will note in the pictures, I shot two with natural light and 2 with LED to highlight the errors.

You will note there is also a spike coming out of the forehead of George. On my MS-65 Obverse, I have a die break off the truncation left to the denticles and reverse die break from first 4 to Maple leaf and from Maple leaf to denticles, and from the last A right step into field.
