Off Cent Strike Mint Error

An off center strike occurs when the coin is not properly seated in the coining chamber and is struck off center by the hammer die and results in both sides being off center. Often you can see the collar die scars on the coin where it was pressed against the collar die during the off center strike.

Off center mint errors are popular and valuable but not worth much more than a few dollars if the coin is a common date, modern coin, and worth even less if there’s no date. However, off center mint errors can be worth hundreds and even thousands if it is a type coin since they’re rarely found struck off center.
