This is the biggest MAD error I have found to date. The only one I've found so far to actually affect the devices.its definitely not real severe but I thought is was cool enough to share.

Very nice! It's not an insane amount but I think it's enough to command a premium.

Is a nice one, that's a Maxwell Smart MAD, "Missed it by...that much!" shows the tilt well...see how the IN GOD is weaker, not fully imprinted? Same on the reverse on the lower side of ONE CENT, that's the tilt and pressure being applied kitty-whompus.

Thanks guys. And thanks for the info Crazybo. I dont know a lot about MADs or that those were some of the side effects, especially that the die is tilted a little but it makes sense with your explanation of the weaker imprints.

I'd save it. The reverse show a weakness on 'RICA' area on AMERICA.

Very nice find and 2x2 worthy. It does have a premium,check eBay sold values for what they sell for.
