It's got a few spots but still one of the stronger mis-aligned dies I've found. Just pulled it out of a bag of 1966 cents I'm working my way through over time.

Awesome find and congratulations tropicalbats! That's a keeper! The reverse also shows weakness too.

The reverse also has some bodacious MD, which I thought was FS-801 when I first saw it. That is, in fact, precisely what I am looking for on these coins as I don't have one. Yet.

A super example of MAD, with part of the date off the flan. Nice work!

Nice one.
If the mint ever got the dies realigned before retiring the dies, there should be some interesting coins with an arc through the last 6 from the collar die.

I have so many ideas in my head, no wonder I have headaches a lot. I've been making a lot of small images that I use on my wall paper that gives the 3-D affect on the screen. I have thousands of these images. I often use them on the photo-badges for the images. Images like this:
