Not sure I'm seeing what you think is unusual about this coin.

Yes hmm I'm not seeing very much. By how many degrees are the two sides different?

Are you talking about the D mintmark being a bit tilted? If so then that's acceptable as Mint Marks were still Hand punched in 78

I like this one. May not be the million dollar coin, but still quite fun to look at. I would keep that in a 2x2. I like a crooked MM. Thanks for sharing!

Just an angled mintmark punch strike. Probably a million of them out there. (Average amount struck by a die)

Going by that chart, I would have to say that a die wears down fairly quickly up to the VLDS, then just get over used until the die, umm.. dies..
