    Both are Die Chips.
    It's what occurs when the Die becomes worn.
    Known as Die Deterioration.

    Neat. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, Paddy said it, no need for me to repeat. Plus, he says it so much more eloquently!

    Nice coin.

    Nice. The wheat stalk could be damage as it appears metal has been moved, but the chips sure make one look thrice at the date.

    Both hammer & anvil dies were suffering on this one.

    It's not really a Mint error. It is just the result of an overused die.

    The coin may have been made at the end when they knew they were suspending operations and pushing the last coins out of a worn die.
