Hey I recently had a vaca in greece and got this and a bunch of other greek coins. I found this coin interesting because of both its date and that it looked like one side was on an angle from the other side. If you dont understand what I mean by that then tell me and ill try to find out the name of the error I am looking for. The images are the best o can give now but ill think of taking it out once I am back from vaca. (5 days). Ask for any details you need, thank you!

I think we are looking at a rotated die? Is that your question? Better to show coins out of 2x2s reduces the glare.

Yeah I looked at the meaning of the term rotated die and I think thats what it is. It looks like you are turning the coin but u just flipped it over.
Is that a possibility?
