Here is one with a die error,a MAT 1852 , this coin has two of the digits missing on the Obverse at 8 o'clock & 2 o'clock, no explanation other than a dirty die has been found so far.

Nice coin! I think that it can be a weak strike and influence of time and hands ;). I see some min. traces of digits on your coin. On my coins several digits look like almoust disappear too. Its very difficult coins tp get in better grade.

Dirty die is quite likely. Note that on Robichari's coin the character at 2 o'clock is quite weak also.
