i collected coins back in the 1950's through 1970's. I just started going through my coins and came across a roll of 1964 D that were offset stamped leaving the L on Lincoln either on the rim or missing. I can not find any reference to this mint error. can anyone enlighten me? I have a high resolution photo which can not be uploaded, ***Edited by Staff - See Photo Tutorial***.

Welcome to CCF. You should not post your e-mail address publicly.

You can use a site like photobucket to host your pics and link them to here. Or use paint to shrink them to size and they will upload and still retain decent detail.

It sounds like you could possibly have an off-center of misaligned die coin. But, without pics, it is pure speculation.

The pix is about 520 times too big. Use irfanview to make it 500x500 pixels. If what you want to illustrate isn't visible at that size, it's not going to have any premium value.

I think what you're describing is the beginning of the end of the master hub deterioration. The same master from 1909 was used until 1968. Billions of cents were made, requiring millions of dies, which in turn required many masters, and so on up the line to the original.

Each time a die or hub was used to make more, the tons of pressure squeezed the original design from the center to the edge. It might only be a billionth of an inch, but do that a million times, and you've moved the edge detail a thousandth of an inch, enuf to move the L of Liberty (which is what I think you meant) to the edge.

By 1968, it got so bad they re-engraved the design for 1969, to get everything back on the coin. Compare the original, 1968 and 1969 coins,noting that even on a proof 1968, the L is almost off the coin, and note the top of IGWT:

Based on description alone, I have to agree with biggfredd. This is a well-known issue and is not an error of any kind.
