2002 date variety for Germany €2 coins?

Post by goldeneye » Mon Nov 19, 2018 9:43 pm

In a roll, I found a €2 2002-F with a date that has different font than the normal dates, most distinct is that the "2"s in the date are straight from the middle to the bottom, whereas the "normal" date has the "2"s in the date curve from the middle of the 2 to the bottom of the 2.

Is that already a known variety and if so, are these fairly common, since there are 281 million of these minted, which means it shouldn't be too rare...

But of course you could be talking about about a production error on the odd coin, there could any number of odd things that can happen...
