I came across couple of plain edge 5 Rs definitive coins of 2010 H'bad mint Also observed couple of 5 Rs definitive coins (both from Mumbai and H'bad mint) with around 25% milled edge and rest plain edge.

Error coins?

I came across several similar specimen from Cal mint. Theses are neither error nor varieties but example of weak edge milling comparable to km# 92.1, km# 154.2 etc series.

P.S. Also I have noticed that the 2010 defs don't have rounded edge planchets like 2009. Maybe the flat edge planchets are not good for edge milling. Just a thought as I'm not sure of what sort of coin planchets the Bom & Hyd mints are using.
