    Perhaps this will answer some questions about value 😉

    Huh. So these are common enough to be worth under $20... Still would be cool to find one.

    @JWP nice circulation finds.
    @moursund value of off center coins vary by what denomination coin it is on, how much it is off center and also if it has the date. The same principals apply to clipped planchet coins.

    EDIT- notice that on every off center pictured so far in this thread that none have the date.

    @moursund Thanks for the info. I know the dates important but I only have a handful of these definite off-center sense and I don't think I have any with dates I wish I did though. Question, have you seen any of these off-center sense to this degree since they started using the waffle machine to prevent sending error coins into circulation. I think they started using this machine around 2002. Just wondered if you had any input on that.

    @ForeignAddict .... Welcome aboard... We will need pictures to help you. You can cut and paste, drag and drop in your message. Cheers, RickO

  • Mine looks about like the one in the top right corner, you can see it’s a 1980 something. Hopefully I’ll figure out how to get the picture to work by my next post
