I think this would be within limits but not sure the limits on these errors. This is the first one iv seen with the naked eye, though iv seen much better ones online

Looks quite offset to me. I believe it will demand a premium.

If so it will be the first coin to go into my error collection. Let's see if some others chime in on it. I have not even been looking for this kinda error but since I didn't need to zoom in to see it, it caught my eye pretty quickly.

The more off centered the strike is more valuable the error, because normally the higher the denomination there is less coins struck so a loonie off centered worth much more than a penny

I'll start looking for big off centers I don't usually look through loonies and toonies(also I have never understood the term toonie) loonie is because of the loon lol but there isn't a loon on the toonie, but I guess of they went with the animal it would be called a beary lol. I have a 50$ coin with an owl do I call it a pentacontagoneloony lol. Sorry got off topic.

So would you say this holds a small premium? It's in decent shape idk what I'd grade it,I can post clearer pics later. So mayb worth like 1$ or 2$?

Idk lol it's like calling a dime a tickle lol. So anyone think this coins worth saving? I have been reading up on broadstrike coins, apparently pretty sought after but I only read one article and it was specific to American coins. This coin tho doesn't seem like it's bigger then a normal dime. Mayb a tiny bit but hard to tell.

They called it a toonie because I think the real winner of the naming contest was "twoonie", as in 2 loonies but they didn't want to use it. What's the weight and diameter of the 10 cents?.

Being new to this coin thing I keep everything that I find interesting that won't put me in the poorhouse. Especially if it's still spendable currency that I can use if I should ever need to do so.

Is there reeding on the edge? If so, it is a slightly misaligned reverse die.

@SPP-Ottawa, ya the edge is reeded like a normal dime. So this is a misaligned reverse die? I'll have to look that up now:p

@SPP-Ottawa, I agree only one side of the coin looked broadstruck, so is this not worth keeping then? I'll have to look up this error more :p

So I did some mkre research, so this if just outside mint stands mayb 1-5$ but since no missing features not a good error coin, but still the best error coin iv posted:p or I guess considering minor die chips and die polish that aren't errors really, this is my first true error coin:p
