I purchased a whole set, plus one extra Monteal and Toronto coin. I found two indents ( one about a mm long shaped as a 6, and a smaller one, on a Toronto coin ) ( and a missing colour peice on an “A” in Canada, plus an upsidedown triangle on another “A” in Canada on the same Montreal coin. ) Could these be worth somthing because of these errors?
