It is hard to take a picture for reference point but I tried my best. Reverse is pointing 30 Degrees off found it when putting in flip. Arrow shows where it is pointing.What is that called?

die rotation or a rotate die. Looks closer to a 8 degree rotation.

It was struck with a rotated die, but the rotation isn't large enough to be worth any premium. It looks to be less than 10 degrees to me.

I agree that this coin has a small amount of die rotation--I'd note it on the 2x2.

The die has to be rotated 90 degrees or more to be worth a premium.

Using the last reverse image, I estimate you're in the ball park at around 30 CCW rotation. Thanks, Doug.

edit: fixing typos again.

I agree with Rotated Die, but it DOES carry a premium above the face value, easily a few bucks.
