1992 ECU Pattern Errors

On a recent trip to Europe I bought a small collection of ECU pattern errors (the fore runners of the current EURO coinage, struck for approval by a private mint), from the simple to the amazingly exotic.  My estimates are that for the whole series there are less than 1000 errors including all denominations and all types of errors, so even a small off center is a very scarce coin and may be unique or one of just a couple examples. Once this group is sold there won't be any more as I know all of the others have been dispersed around the world.
