Malaysia 1976 10 Sen Missing Obverse Error
***This Error 10 sen coin dated 1976 must be one collectible that has been in my possession for the longest time - at least 30 years now, if not more.
As a school-boy, I found this coin in some loose change and I was very excited, then, to have come across this freak coin, whereby its Obverse is missing or almost missing. I would grade this coin as Good EF to AU & it still retains its original patina on the Reverse.
It's amazing that this coin is still with me after all these donkey years considering the number of times that I have moved house & during the brief period that I was in Europe.
And obviously, unlike the current Bunga Raya series, this 1976 coin is definitely an unassisted pure mint error, & and which is further emphasised by the presence of the light silhouette of the actual missing design, a typical feature I am told for such an error.
