Hello, I had a question regarding this dime. It appears to be very off center, but I can't find much information online whether or not this is considered an "error". Sorry for the pic quality it's as clear as I could get it with my phone... :(
Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Please, if possible, remove the coin from its 2x2 for better, clearer images. Just be careful when handling them

Now onto the coin,
Without seeing the reverse, it could be 1 of 2 things, an off center strike (not punch) or a MAD strike. (Mis-Aligned Die)

thanks, the photos are not ideal, but This coin is an off center strike. But not enough to bring in any premium. The lettering around the edges need to be falling off the edge to be of any increased value.

Yep, I see a minor off center strike also, interesting to keep, with Dearborn. If the OCS were more prominent, the devices on the coin could begin to fall off and then begin to pick up collector value.

@dde, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks to me like only one side of this dime is off-center, so I would call this a mis-aligned die (MAD) error rather than an off-center strike.

Looks like a MAD as only the obverse is off.

MAD? Yes. Extra premium? No, too minor.

The MAD coins that have a premium will show a weakness on the reverse designs opposite that area:



The mis-alignment of the strike doesn't make the opposite side strike up, because of the location strike over the wrong target area.
