  1. Wow, so many.
    Like that you must share some with us la, hahaha.
    Its really great when one started to build up a collection of these scare coins until to the extent that more and more satisfaction would be derived from another fresh specimen found.
    The feel just gets better and better.
    As for us, we could only watch in silence while we feel glad for your astonishing finds at the same time, haha.
    Wish you continued success in building up this 1969 error series.
    Very nice collection you have here, Dickson.
    Remember, the rusty one that if you don't like and want to throw away, please let us know ar, haha.
    Thanks a lot for sharing, Dickson :)

  2. Dear whycollect,
    I always like very much to share,but photos only lah!For you special,only you,you can print also!haha!
    I worry I may become nyayuk and simply throw coins away,I asked my lovely wife to keep away all dustbins from my sight!
    If I can find a similar piece,I would not throw "away",instead,I will throw "zun-zun" into your "Shui-pin-hu"!Haha!

  3. Hi Dickson,
    Once an interesting theme of collection is started, it can make one feels obsessive.
    Just like the Mao pins and badges.
    Only the emergence of fakes brought us back to sanity.
    Haha, suppose you need not have to worry about this beautiful 69 series of yours here.
    Finding a high grade 69 20sen is already tough.
    How to find more of these errors lor.
    These rare series will make a good exhibition piece especially accompanied by a write-up, just like those exhibitions on postal history.
    By the way, if you getting nyayuk let us know at once ar.
    We will be the first one in front of house carrying the biggest shui-pin with us, haha.
    Phew, its really great how these beautiful collectibles can bring so much joy to our lives.
    Thanks so much for sharing this joy, Dickson :)

  4. hai mr. dickson..
    saya masih tidak faham tentang Clad Layer Errors...boleh mr. dickson terangkan??adakah berkaitan dengan warnanya atau garisan/jalur pada syiling??
    terima kasih mr. dickson.

  5. fakkahqarsh,
    Clad Layer Errors..adalah tentang gabungan (bonding atau cladding)galian yang tidak sempurna mengakibatkan planchet yang defect.
