Belgium: 20 eurocent 2007: for Die break hunters
« on: January 29, 2012, 08:46:44 PM »
In the attachments you can see a 20 eurocent of Belgium 2007.

There is a extra "island" above Norway.

Also the 2 and 0 are connected with a small circle.

Happy hunting !

mvg,
Aernout

Excellent detail pictures, Aernout. Without them, I would have guesses dirty die, rather than die defect, but you convinced me.

Great find! Seems that Belgian mint is the European equivalent of Kolkata mint. ;D >:D

Another confirmation for your theory:



Obverse die break within inner circle: starting below chin, continuing before left mouth and from eye to the top of head and direction third star from top right.

As for the Norwegian coast, well, obviously somebody in Brussels did not like Slartibartfast who as we all know designed the coastline with those fjords ;D and decided to hide part of said coast with that blob. But as you just showed, there are other similarly "defective" pieces ...
