I found a 1999-P Connecticut Quarter with a slight off center strike. I didn't notice the front until I took pictures. Saw the back right away.

Take a look.

A nice "fun find" coin.

I agree with your analysis. Worthy of saving in a 2x2?

Not an off center. It's a MAD coin. The hammer die is slightly out of alignment. Not enough for a premium.

Note how the devices fall over the edge of the coin?
Also not how on the opposite side of the coin, there will be also weakness on that area.
These are the collectable examples.

(View this on my computer screen compared with the phone, makes me ask the same question that SamCoin asks. Lets see the edge of the coin to see the reeds?)

Can we see the edges? It does appear to be displaced on both sides, but I suspect if it isn't a MAD then it's a partial collar, not an off center strike.

@OriginalAtog congrats, you've got a partial collar error! Very nice find. You can see in the first picture of the rim how there is a medial line separating part of the edge that has been reeded from part that has not - that is caused by the collar die not being fully in place during the strike. Part of the coin receives the reeded edge as intended and part does not.

Note where the reeds are missing and the metal is expanding wider than the reeds. That was the areas where the collar wasn't. The areas showing the reeds is where the coin was in the collar.
