I always will describe upsets by the hands of the clock. Everyone can tell the time but when it comes to working out degrees some people are clueless. Just my opinion.

I like the clock's too. That's generally how I see upset coins listed.
So your lovely coin is hanging around at 7:00ish - 7:30ish o'clock.

For some unknown reason I collect 1966 10 cent coins. I went through about 300 of these coins to do some stats or the rarity of upset errors in this particular coin. After some heavy number crunching I have come up with the following.
Upset 1966 10 cent coins are as Rare as hen's teeth.
Didn't find one . So if you have any , hang on to them.

nice quality coin spg1 and a decent upset too. In the time Iv'e been looking for upset coins I've found 3 upset 2001 dollars, 1 2010 50 cent, 1 2001? 20 cent and zero 1966 10 cent coins. Your coin should be worth a pretty penny.

I think I bought it from an ANDA show in Melbourne many years ago for about $70-80.

I'm sure it's appreciated in value.....

I saw 2 1966 10 cent upset coins go for around $37 on eBay. Their condition was no way as good as yours but an excellent bye price at $37 for 2. Someone got a real bargain.

That a verrrrry nice upset. I know mine, wherever they are, can not compare in any way whatsoever to this little beauty.

I've spent hours trying to find the little devils, but they continue to elude me. I found my 12 x 2001 $1 Upsets, but the 2 x 10c'ers are obviously very safe in their hidey hole.

From memory, one is about 30° and the other is maybe 180°.

Alright, I found them.

I've moved them into 1½ x 1½ and lined up the bottom left corner of each holder with the same position on the Scope Preview screen, so all images have the same alignment.

The first 2 images are of a 'normal' coin for comparison and the degree of upset is my estimation, not actually measured scientifically.



10c 1966 Rev Normal



10c 1966 Obv Normal



10c 1966 Obv Upset 15-20 Degrees CCW



10c 1966 Obv Upset 80 Degrees CW
