Lot Of 3 Canada 5 Cents Bug Tail Mint Error Variety Coins, 1957. 1959, 1962:
If you are a variety collector like me, you will want this set of 3 Canadian 5 cent mint error coins. A recurring die crack error in Canadian nickels in this era occurred at the end of the beaver's tail. The 1957 coin is the well-documented and sought-after 1957 Bug Tail variety. The 1959 Bug Tail variety was identified by Zoell in his minor varieties catalog (P191q).The 1962 variety was also identified by Zoell (EF194o). As the photos indicate all the coins havevery clear die chips at the end of the beaver's tail. The coins have some wear, but the bug tail features are clear and the coins are probably in VERY FINE condition. These coins will make a great addition to any collection.
The photos are of the coins you are offerding on. They were taken with a macro lens in natural light. I have included photos from several angles to better show the bug tail feature.
If you plan to offer on other coins I have currently listed, wait to make payment until all the sales you are participating in are complete. Request an invoice and I will combine shipping to save you money if possible. Combined shipping costs will depend on number and weight of coins, and their total value.
