Off center strikes occur when a blank does not enter the striking chamber fully and is struck by the dies while not centered. This can result in a dramatic and interesting error coin.

I have always loved these!

This one is my idea of a really nice off-center. A lot of displacement. Lots of missing design features. Not too much mangling. Full date and area under the date (no mm questions).

These two, on the other hand, are not off centers at all - although I have seen similar coins sold as such. In my opinion, they are clearly after mint damage. Most likely, they were encased (looks like the roosie was pried out rather brutally).

I received this Statehood quarter in change. Just slightly out of the collar and no design features missing, but still..in change - woohoo!
