    Anyone know if this alignment error is something that adds any value, or if it is too minor? Thanks in advance!

    I'm gonna guess 'too minor' but am interested to see what the experts say.

    I am leaning that way too, but like you, I want a second opinion.

    Minor Misaligned Die Strike.. Nice but The condition of the coin will make it undesirable.

    Misaligned Die Strike does not add any value to a coin. It is a common Error. In fact Minor/Common Errors such as this will detract from the value of a desirable coin such as a FEC. IMO.

    Depends.. Maybe not for Smaller denominations. But for larger Denominations such as Kennedy Halves and up they may have a premium.

    Here is a nice Ike example from my collection -

    Thanks for sharing that. My knowledge of errors is very minimal, and I love seeing new ones, especially certified errors.

    Yes They "May" have a premium, (I am glad that you included that word into your opinion.) But only to those who "Desire" such a coin.
    It is "Desire to have" that increases the value of a coin, not rarity or other attributes. It has nothing to do with the denomination. IMO.
