1889-O rotate on it

Post by colwillys » Mon Apr 19, 2021 9:12 pm

Just a worn out 1889-O VAM .. Picked it because of rotated die . White label tape to show top of coin .
Does it make 90deg . :o :shock: :P .

Looks like 75 degrees CW with your alignment. If the obverse is aligned properly with the date horizontal, the rotation will be very close to 90 degrees CW. I have a 1889 O in VF+ with a full 90 degree CW rotated reverse.
Nice pick Tom !
