A P (planchet) rating means that the X does not have the raised rim like a traditional X would have. A planchet error can also mean that the X was struck with the wrong press. A D (die) rating means that the X has endured a “die error.” Probably the most common type of die error is when a portion of the die pulls away and produces a crack in the X. The third classification an S (Striking) rating are usually the most sought after effort Xs. A striking error is when something goes wrong with the pressing of the X resulting to an error in the image on the X. For example, an off center X is quite a common striking error. Xs like this have a hefty price tag that will accompany them.

The common phenomenon - the "X effect" traces its origin back to olden day spell-checkers, wherein, when you type the word "cooperation", it spell checks to X. The reason being that, olden day computers had only the hyphenated form (co-operation) in their dictionary. This spelling review to X was quite a highlight in the early days of computing, when Apple was the pioneer in the field.

Modern examples include:

definately -> defiantly
voldemort -> voltmeter
DeMeco Ryans -> demerol :D

26/11 !

X had been living in the Mumbai Chabad House and working for Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, caring for the Holtzbergs' son Moshe since his birth. The Holtzbergs were the Israel-born directors of the house run by the global Orthodox Jewish Chabad movement.

On November 26, 2008, as the Mumbai attacks began, a group of attackers entered the Chabad house and began shooting at everyone inside. X heard gunshots and locked herself in a laundry room but soon emerged from the room and ran upstairs hearing Rivka scream, there she found Gavriel and Rivka motionless and covered in blood with Moshe crying beside them, his pants drenched in blood. With the attackers still inside, X grabbed Moshe and ran from the building. Later, when Indian commandos stormed the house, it was confirmed that Gavriel and Rivka were among the 173 people killed in the attacks, and that Moshe was now an orphan.
The Chabad movement's leaders decided Moshe could not stay in India and that he would be relocated to Israel where he has family. However, the movement insisted that X be allowed to go with him, as X was the only one, the boy was responding to. Although X had no passport or papers, Moshe's grand uncle, Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, helped arrange for her to get a visa to come to Israel with Holtzberg to help him start his new life. The Israeli government under Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni granted X a special visa offering immigration status.

X was awarded permanent resident status and honorary Israeli citizenship on 13 September 2010.
Israel is considering conferring on her the title "Righteous among the Nations", the highest Israeli award that may be presented to non-Jews. X would be the first Indian to receive this award.
