CANADIAN ERROR COINS - DIE VARIETIES
These are small chipped off portions of the die, usually where the field meets an element.
May appear as raised "blobs" or "fillings" adjoining design elements of a coin.
Also weaknesses in the design of the die, in regards to metal flow,
account for many chipped dies such as plugged dates and letters.
