    1934 Mercury Dime found earlier this year- Obverse misalaigned ?

    Hello,
    Hi everyone,
    I posted this on another section of this forum, but figured I might get a better shot at a response posting it here also.

    I am not knowledgeable on error coins, and was looking for help on this 1934 Mercury Dime I found metal detecting this summer.

    I am finally getting around to placing my summer finds into holders, and when I did, the obverse is noticeably off-set to the left of center about 10 degrees. I couldn't find anything in online research with this mentioned for this coin, so I am asking for help here to see if this is common/acceptable, or is this something else?

    Thanks in advance, here is a 600dpi scan. I purposely used the same top edge of the holder to align for the scans, so the obverse is upside down, but this is the truest way to make a comparison front to back.

    It does look like it was struck offset. Interesting find. Take it to a dealer for their opinion and its possible worth. Let us know what's said.

    I researched this and found out that it is common for the reverse to be off. The ones that are off 90 degrees or more are the ones that are really sought after it seems.
