So got a couple off centers given to me today. Went through a lot of them recently and they have all been pretty straight forward.

Now this one, hmmmm. At first it looks like brockage on the reverse, but it's perfectly oriented to the obverse so seems more likely it's part of the design from the die. So, an off center struck through a late stage die cap?

Help me out as I do not know what is going on here. Thanks!

I think your right about the reverse being a late stage die cap. Again, I'm no expert so I might be wrong. Either way it's a great pickup! Happy hunting!

Great find! Looks high relief so we can get a date range of 1959-1968. Unless there is some unique marker, about the closest we'll get in that field, not that it matters too much.

It was struck Off Center plus Struck Through a Late Stage Die Cap on the reverse. Nice pickup!

Struck off-centre, and through a late stage anvil die cap.

Thanks folks! Quite a good hit for me as while I don't really collect off center coins I do collect struck through die caps. This will be a unique one in the collection.
