I'm going through my Roosevelt dimes and sorting them by date and came across this one. The "2" on the date is way out of place. The last pic is NOT of this coin, it is how every other coin of that year looks just for reference. Can anyone explain what causes this and if it is a collectible error? Thanks in advance!

How could the "2" move that far after the strike without leaving some kind of mark?

That is a significant clockwise movement

That is an extreme example, but just the right hit can produce it. Certainly didn't come from the mint that way.

The whole section is varying degrees of smashed flat especially the 2 but also the JS of the designer initials. the 2 hasn't moved it's gotten flatter and wider and dragged to the rim from the hit spacing between the 6 and the two is relatively the same so it likely took a hit glancing off it in a southeasterly direction.

Other than this, a slightly misaligned obverse die that doesn't add a premium to the value of the coin either. Still an interesting find, there's a whole lot of weird damage out there you come across coin roll hunting, and I kind of enjoy trying to figure out how it happened if I can.

Yep, just a well placed hit that moved the metal over. PSD.
