Japan error coins--I don't collect them per se, but do have a few.
Just thought I'd share these. I was reading a post somewhere that implied Japanese error coins are a super rarity. They do exist .
The photos are my earlier attempts, but are serviceable.
This one is a cool error I bought in Tokyo. A known error there, but not in the catalog and not slabbed as such by NGC.
This is another from a Tokyo show. This one at least is in the standard Japanese catalog.
And, my most recent purchase (from Japanese seller on eBay)...
The slip of paper shows the connection, and was actually in place on the sellers photo, made the trip safely from Tokyo, to New York, to Eugene Oregon (??? what's up with that USPS ???) and finally to me in SW Virginia.
with the slip removed:
Plus some rather cool clashed dies from an older 5 sen. I've seen this on several examples so definitely not super rare
