Ya know sometimes when you don't know what you are talking about it's best to just say nothing. For the first coin, how can you tell it's struck off center or if it's just a misaligned die without seeing the reverse? On the second coin that could very well be a clipped planchet. It's hard to tell from the fuzzy pics. But since you determined it was PMD the OP probably went and spent what could have been a couple dollar coin because of bad advice.:rollling:
Hey man there's no need to go on the attack on the other guy. Seems to me he was just trying to help. Plus these are just coins I found roll searching.
Wasn't trying to be mean, it just irks me when someone puts out wrong info and someone accepts it as fact. Especially on two types of errors that have a ton of info on the web that can be found with a minimum of searching.
For clipped planchet errors just google Blaksley effect.
For offcenter strikes and misaligned dies the search is self explanitory.
The second coin is an incomplete planchet or a clipped planchet. It appears to be a straight clip.
The photos are not the best (especially of the reverse where the area in question is shaded) but a portion of the coin is missing at 12:00 on the obverse (6:00 on the reverse). Whether it is a genuine clip or PMD (cut after it left the Mint) cannot be determined from those photos.
I agree with this answer completely. Early 80's cents are commonly found with misaligned dies.
The second coin looks to be a genuine clip.
