1891 O Morgan with Rotated Reverse help with degree of rotation

MICHAELDIXONMICHAELDIXON Posts: 6,333 ✭✭✭✭✭

These pictures are of a normal 1891 O Morgan and the rotated reverse 1891 O. What is the degree of rotation and value?
The center picture is of the edge of the coin to show it isn't a pieced together job. Thanks, Mike

    That's pretty darn cool. It appears to be about 135-degrees counter-clockwise. As for value, I have no idea.

    Yours is one of the better rotated dies on the Morgan series. :)
    Too bad it isn't a little higher grade.
    Here is a list of the known rotated Morgan's, I looked for a an idea of value but didn't find anything of much help.
    Maybe @messydesk can give you an idea of value. ;)

    Looks to be around 120 degrees CCW. 180 the eagle would be completely upside down. Nice rotation. Any rotation thats more than 90 degrees is desirable and brings a premium.
