TAGGED EAR 1966 SILVER 1 rand MS62 ngc south africa AFRIKAANS R1 UNCIRCULATED 2
You get the exact one shown here: certification #. 1966 AFRIKAANS LEGEND TAGGED EAR SILVER 1 RAND S1R R1. SPECIAL PEDIGREE: TAGGED EAR. THIS COIN HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY CONSERVED BY NCS/NGC. The tag was caused by the metal from the die cracking and bending up and over. The progression of this is seen in the coins. And thus the tag varies in appearance. The “TAG” on this one is nice but the photo doesn’t show the area well. THIS COIN IS A DUPLICATE IN MY COLLECTION. This error coin is very popular in South Africa and has been for years. Brian Hern had published images of this type coin decades ago yet NGC didn’t recognize any errors or varieties for many years in the silver R1 coins. Morgan Carroll to help me get this error officially recognized by NGC a couple of years ago. Since these coins were regular circulation coins that were. Placed into circulation there are very few good examples in existence. I sell sealed sets also. You may want to check out my other items as I have lots of South African silver coins, included graded and raw coins. I’ll be listing a limited number of other types of Mint-Sealed South African silver coins in the next few days.
