I bought this Peace dollar online seeing from pics that it has a rotated reverse die.
As soon as I got it in the mail earlier this week, I tried to see if I can measure the rotation with a protractor in person and closer saw that the reverse has a 15-ish degree rotation in the clockwise direction.
Is this kind of error that common?
Does it add any sort of premium over the coin?
Should I consider getting it regraded?

. If it is rotated, it is not off enough for a premium. http://rotateddies.com/

Place the coin in front of a mirror and take a single photo showing the obverse and reverse--post what you get. Thanks.

Nice looking coin, but I don't see a premium here.

as a side note, the coin looks more like an MS65 than a 64 based on the photos

It looks like the entire coin is slightly rotated in the holder.

No sense in getting it regraded, you would get the same result.
Most collectors like a a minimum of 90 degrees rotated and preferably 180 degrees.
There is not much value in slight rotations as they are within spec.

I agree that the coin is already rotated in the holder. If you rotate the obverse such that IGWT becomes level with the holder, then the die rotation of the reverse becomes less. Either way, not enough for any premium.

What do you mean, I see that the obverse looks slightly rotated counter clockwise within the holder by looking at the "IN GOD WE TRVST" but even if the obverse was completely centered within the holder, that would still offset the reverse be like another degree or two in the clockwise direction? I thought the fact that the coin has been already graded would give people a better understanding of what I'm talking about?

If you are correct that this coin has a degree or two rotation, then it is insignificant enough to be common and not carry a premium.

Seems accurately graded and doesn't appear to have any significant die rotation.

If you rotate the coin clockwise in the holder about 5 degrees so that IGWT is level, you are simultaneously rotating the reverse of the coin counter-clockwise in the slab. Thus if you are perceiving a degree of die rotation based on the slab edge, once the obverse is level then the perceived rotation of the reverse in relation to the slab edge is less. I should have put "perceived" in my original comment.
