How to detect a genuine clip errors and a counterfeits?
Always pay attention to the rim right opposite/across the affected area.The rim will always exhibits an imperfect or deformed rim,this is due to the affected area could  not respond the force of the upsetting or upended process to raise the rim.This phenomenon was best explained by Mr.Blakesley, hence,is also called Blakesley Effects.

  1. Hello Dickson,
    I suppose the Blakesley effect that caused the deformation of the rim opposite the clip planchet is actually caused by the upsetting mill instead of by the collar die.
    By the way, your error coins are splendid for collectors.
    Cheers!

  2. The 2007 50sen overstruck with 1 sen as pictured at the top of your blog is an assisted error.

    I sold a similar piece to an American 2 to 3 years ago.

  5. Hi Dickson,
    We noticed this missing alphabets seem to appear more commonly on the 1985 50 sen coins.
    In fact we have found a number of these coins with a missing alphabet 'I' and a broken 'Y' on the lettered edge word, 'MALAYSIA'.
    Cheers.
