Heritage Auctions - This is a remarkable coin, a spectacular double strike mint error in lustrous Mint State on a 19th century silver type! The first strike was normal, but the coin was struck a second time, approximately 50% off center toward 12 o'clock, at 9 o'clock relative to the first strike. The coin rotated 90 degrees clockwise between strikes. No planchet was fed between strikes, thus both sides show the dramatic widely off-center second strike. A perusal of our online auction archives, which go back to 1993, show seven appearances of off-center Seated quarters. Six of those pieces were in circulated grades, and a majority were 25% or less off center. None were as far off center as this example!

Super cool and other coins in that auction are just as neat., the off center Morgan (No Date) from New Orleans is one of the more dramatic off center dollars I've seen in a long, long time. Wonder how strong prices will be on some of the major errors in the sale? I'm betting they go pretty high.
