    Nine half-cent, I didn't know they still made them in 1988. :)

    Haha, fantastic coin!

    These are graded from only the struck portion, as I'm told.

    Thus, I'd grade yours 64 or 65 RD.

    It's obviously struck off center, but I'm not entirely sure what percentage (or if they list that on the label). It looks to be between 40-50% off center.

    Yeah, that looks every bit MS to me, too. It's scarred-up, but it's technical attributes are very sharp. This is an outstanding example of an, as you say, "off-center" strike. Very nice, um, half-coin. :)

    A lot of the marks look like die wear or deterioration.

    How about MS 64 RD 30-35% Off-Center.

    You made a thread with a hint so I’m guessing it’s not a normal situation.

    I’ll take a WAG that it got uncirc details and wasn’t sent in as an error

    Nope I tricked you into thinking there was a trick! :p

    In all reality, the title just meant it was an error and not a typical cent.
