NZ / Malaya mule 1965 3d/5c
« on: March 19, 2011, 11:42:58 AM »
Austrokiwi drew my attention to this lot in the forthcoming Noble auction recently:

I notice they don't specifically say it's a mule, but it strikes me as odd that the Malaya and British Borneo obverse die should have been accidentally paired with a New Zealand 1965 3d, when the Malaya and British Borneo coins were last struck in 1961.  Or - thinking as I type - could it have been a Hong Kong obverse die instead, as their 5c were still being struck with that design in 1965?
