Better Date - 15 degrees rotation Die Error
Pretty cool one...just sharing

If I'm not mistaken the Mint tolerance is 7 degrees for each die and I think it starts at 15 to be considered and error...noting below that. I might be wrong thou...
not considered collectable unless they are at least
45 degree rotated, either clockwise or counterclockwise.
It is rotated there 15 degrees you mention, and it's
interesting, but it's not a true Rotated Reverse.
Wouldn't 7 degrees (CW) and 7 degrees (CCW) be 14 degrees? Close enough!
It may be considered an error at 15 degrees, but you probably won't find too many error dealers that would care about anything less than 90 degrees. Perhaps @Fred Weinberg will chime in to give us his view on this.
Hah! It seems that I type too slow. Thanks, Fred!
It makes perfect sense for the 45 degrees...it's obvious and you don't have to measure it to see it's there. I did't know about the 27 degrees thou.
I have been using a mirror & protractor, like an idiot. :ugh:
They are like $5 on ebay.
RR's this way
If the top of the reverse points to 1:30 CW) or 10:30 (CCW),
it's a 45 degree rotation.
If the reverse points to 3:00 or 9:00, it's a 90 degree rotation
If the reverse points to 6:00. it's a 180 degree rotated reverse.
Just figure degree's based on those, plus/minus
