My wife's FIRST error coin find. This off center Roosevelt dime was on the floor at Walmart when Amy happened to see it. She spotted the error and gave it to me.

Not a bad looking coin!

Very cool! I'm not sure how much "extra" value being this small amount of being off-centre might being on the open market, but it certainly a neat coin to hold onto, an "interesting" conversation starter. Some people collect off-centre coins, so it might bring a couple bucks, but I'd just keep it. Good on Amy for spotting it!

Nice find Yokozuna, I have a few of these but not much premium if any at all. The premium comes in when the devices fall off the side, nice one though!

Is it a broadstrike? It looks like it is off-center enough that the devices should be cut off, but they aren't.

That is a cool find Yokozuna! I need to train my wife to be able to spot coins like that.

Looks like it was in the collar? I think I see reeds on the edge of the coin. (by Liberty)

Looks like an uncentered broadstrike. Not an off-center because none of the deign is missing.

It's an uncentered broadstrike with collar clash. My photos don't show just how much luster the coin has. She's really good at identifying errors and much better than me at grading. As far as I'm concerned, the coin is NOT for sale.
