This is my first post, so please be gentle, haha. I understand that the floating roof error is relatively common and of little interest, but it was my first find and it made me quite happy. And I will remain happy if any experienced numismatists could confirm my finding! Cheers.

I see it barely attached on the right side, but "floating" on the left side.

Very nice pictures - in hand sure - floating roof. Although quite common on 69 & 70's cents from over polishing the dies!!

Just FYI, the "floating roof" is not an error. It is just a result of an over polished die but not a mint error. The 1969 and 1970's had a lot of floating roofs and both also had a lot of NO FG's (the designer's initials) with the 69' having more No FG's in my findings. Still a nice find but they are very common as already mentioned. PCGS actually lists the 1969 NO FG as a variety, not an error. The last time I checked, higher Mint State (MS) examples of the 1969 No FG do carry a premium based on their website info.
