I asked the mint what the tolerance was for die rotations. Here is their answer:
"For circulating denominations the coin rotation tolerance is typically: +/-6⁰
For numismatic (proof coins, precious metals, commemoratives, etc.) denominations the coin rotation tolerance is typically: +/-3⁰"
The most popular rotations are the 45⁰, 90⁰ and 180⁰ rotations.
Collectors show little interest in rotations smaller than 45⁰, except for proofs which will start at about 20⁰.
I like your method of tying a string around the coin to show the amount of rotation!
I didn't know what the heck I was looking at until I read your post! It looked like the coin was cut in half!! Thanks!
I bet a small rubber band would work also.
I'm going to try that. I have a Buffalo Nickel with a rotated die. Thanks!
Post a pic so we can see if it works as well as the string.
I gotta find a small enough rubber band to go around the coin. Stby....
@Kaye- Can I post it here if I find one?
I am a seamstress and used elastic thread!
Yes it was, thank you!
