New find while coin roll hunting. It's been a couple years since I enjoyed this hobby, and to find this in my first box is super exciting. It's not in a flip yet, but I've got some on the way, so I'll try to figure out the amount of rotation once I get one.

Make sure to check the rotated die site for a match.

Hey wadahek, just wanted to throw this out there. I found a half dollar Kennedy not long ago that had the same type rotation. Turned out to be a " Magician's coin"...... ARGH!!!! Not at all saying this is what yours is, hopefully not, but I just wanted to mention this. Heck... I wouldn't think a Jefferson would be large enough to fabricate a magic coin but I did just google it and sure nuff, they are out there. Your pics are a bit too blurry to tell but look at both sides of the coin and see if you can make out a hairline gap around the entire rim. You can also weigh it to see if it is within the weight tolerance for a clad Jefferson. Like I said, hopefully is is a rotated die because that's a nice one.

@John1 what is the website to check? I'm fairly new to error and variety hunting tbh!

@Scuba1 Thank you so much for the tip!! I just checked the weight and it's 5.03g thank goodness! &

A great way to take a photo is in front of the mirror. Take the picture of the obverse with the reverse reflecting in the mirror. I'd like to see that just for fun. I love a good rotated die.

If the side of the coin is OK you has a 45 deg.
