A Quartet of Swedish Double-Strikes

I wanted to share this group of four 5 öre coins from the last 100 years of Swedish coinage with the readers of Mint Error News Magazine. All these errors are very rare. Especially the 5 öre from Gustav V, who reigned for more than 40 years. Major errors on the 5 öre in bronze were virtually unknown until I found this coin at an eBay auction this winter. The coin was sold to me by an American dealer. The smallest 5 öre, dated 1973, was also struck on a wrong planchet, making it the first of this kind of multiple error on any Swedish coin.
