This coin 1964 Lincoln is strange. I can flip it and it is not lined up if I flip it the other side comes up at 2 oclock. and It has problems on the IN and on chin and top of the head look like his hair was pulled. And its something behind his neck. Thank you for your help.

It would be a rotated-die error, typically measured in degrees. I'd you take a photo in a mirror where both sides are visible at the same time, it serves as proof (if, say, you are trying to sell the coin online).

As for the other things you mentioned, it may be circulation hits. It's a well-worn coin. Others will weigh in.

Looks like a normal circulated coin to me.

Can you post a picture of the coin using a mirror so we can see both sides at the same time in the same picture? It will help us determine how much of an offset the coin is from Obverse to reverse.

sorry guys I don't understand how to use the mirrors, so we will just forget that action. And thank you for telling so I know I can junk this one. Thank you.

Fistcha, if you just hold the coin close to a mirror and take a photo at a slight angle so it shows both the obverse and the reflection of the reverse, that'll show the amount of rotation the coin has. It's fairly easy to do, but you might have to play with it a bit at first, if you're interested.

Minor rotation and significant circulation wear plus a good number of hits to the coin.

A well-worn coin that's showing it's age.
