Comments

There are coins of 1958 and 1959 with die clash, described as 'sun under left arm'.  Die clashes occurs when the press works but there are no blanks between dies. After the clash, all coins with images of one side bear marks of the other. As the result images with the round design of a wing of eagle on Obverse were struck in flat area between hand and body of fisherman on Reverse. This pattern with some imagination looks like a sun. Die clash occurs spontaneously without control and does not considered as variety.
