    Ive been sitting on this coin for about 10 years as well as many others. How rotated is this considered? My apologies as my digital scope is broken, photos are of a 12 oclock orientation of OBV with flip and same of REV with flip

    I am not your error guy, but in the past I know the error experts like to see a photo of the coin against a mirror. That way they can see both obverse and reverse and better gauge the rotation.

    On a horizontal, I would say it is within specs.
    If you just have your terminology wrong, then the rotation would be significant.

    Also, like weight, there is a mint tolerence allowance of around 25 degrees. Real interest begins when the rotation is 90 degrees or more.

    I wouldn't call that a major rotation. It's not.
    About 15 to 20 degrees rotation which is within tolerance.

    That's a pretty significant rotation.. More than 45 degrees!

    Thanks for taking the time folks. This was the coin that got me into this about 12 years ago. Read an article about error coins, looked at my change from the supermarket and there it was, easy as that! LMAO only rotated ive ever found.

    Just curious of the approximate severity of rotation as I'm now debating getting it graded. Haven't gone that route before.

    From what i can gather would !30 derees be appropriate or am I doing that wrong?

    If Paddy says 45 degrees than this is a very good rotation.

    Place your Quarter on this picture. Turn it in the direction of the rotation.. Get your number :woot:

    Your coin’s rotation looks to be something like 90 + 90/2 = 135 degrees.
    Look at your mirror image pic. Now get a regular quarter and look at that in a mirror too. If your coin was properly oriented, in the mirror image George’s head would be pointed down and he’d be looking to your left. To get to what you coin shows, first rotate it 1/4 (90 degrees) and now George is looking straight up. Turn it another 1/8 (45 degrees) and George will be looking up and to the right.

    I've never sent coins in to a TPG. But I've always wondered, do they determine degree of rotation for you (since they're the professionals) or do they go by what the owner of the coin thinks it is? And what of percentage off from an incomplete planchet or an off-center?
