I just want to present you my oldest off center strike.

This is a large Cent from Nova-Scotia with about 10% of decentering.

We can also observe on both sides the cracked planchet.

The interesting aspect of the coin is the level of circulation. The grade is not so high, unfortunately.

I guess the money value at that period of time was higher than the benefit of collecting errors.

Very nice coin. First significant provincial off-center I have seen, but obviously The Royal Mint had an occasional issue with these back then. Here are my two. Again, nice coin.
