'79 Off Center Newp!

1979, that is. About 1% the price of what a 15% off-center 1879 would have cost.

Sexy additon for the prime number date for sure... And way to get JR & Mark's momentary hopes up with that title JB! :? :lol: :mrgreen:

Nice "Bait n Switch" JB ! Major error dollars have great eye appeal.

Still and ugly design, but at least there's less to see.

Great reply, These newer coins are without any artistic value.

Presumably it's an optical illusion - but the design part looks smaller than the planchet to me. And "Yes" I am wearing my glasses and I tried them upside down and backwards and it looked the same.

Combination of the spread of the unconstrained planchet and the hendecagonal border instead of a normal rim.
