    1982 Lincoln Penny With Rotated Die

    Last night while roll hunting some pennies, I found a 1982 Lincoln Penny, Large Date and I'm pretty sure it's zinc. The reverse is rotated about 30ish degrees off its center. I'm at work right now but can post pictures this evening, but i haven't been able to find much info on it online.

    anyone ever heard of this? common error? etc?

    Thanks!

    Pics finally. Was a busy week. I drew the blue line across the fold to show the top of the front.

    It's rotated, but I don't think its 45 degrees.

    I reread it and apologize. I don't think that will add any value to it.

    It could be an optic illusion but it appears that the Obverse of the Cent in pic #1 is not perfectly aligned in respect to a North and South plane of the 2x2. If so, then the rotation is actually less when the 2x2 is rotated to show the Reverse in the upright position. Therefore, I believe the rotation is close to but less than 20 degrees and definitely not enough to add much or any real value to the coin over face value. Some coins gain value when the rotation is better than 30 degrees but most collectors really want rotation of 60 degrees or better and if close to 180 degrees, CHA-CHING!!
