I have a 1973 Lincoln penny with left side edge thicker from what looks like it was off center when struck. Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks Joe

to CCF. with John on this one being a slight MAD. Just a bit of info here in a nutshell. A MAD is not the same thing as an Off-Centered Strike even though it sounds like it should be the same thing. A MAD will only affect one side of a coin (usually the obverse) which is caused by a slight, sometimes major, shift in the hammer die that strikes the obverse side of a coin. An Off-Centered Strike, which there are numerous different variations of, will affect BOTH sides of a coin due to the planchet not being centered properly during the strike. Off-centered strikes are more times than not much more pronounced than a MAD. Just FYI.

Also part of a tilted die issue. The contact marks flatten already the fin. But I feel these issues are part of MD on that is caused by the Machine Doubling. If you run into a new OBW roll of coins and note this examples of some die marker coins and some not affected with the same die marker. I would like to see examples of this to prove my theory.

Again they need to be from the same die pair and show this sometimes and other times not show this tilted die affect. When you spot this save the whole roll, because I would also like to know how many were normal and how many are affected by the Machine Doubling. It could be some with Machine Doubling, some without Machine Doubling, some with the tilted die issue, some with the tilted die and showing a fin. The ones with the un-flatted fin would be ones to save for a premium. So if you have a whole box of these, check for this and keep the safe in 2X2's to prevent them from getting flattened. Looking forwards to your finds. Then we will know for sure how this happens on the coins.
