1898 O Error

I just bought a 1898 O Morgan Silver Dollar and just wanted to find out if this is an error? I am getting ready to list it on eBay and was taking pictures and wanted to show the O better. Zoomed in and all the O's from this year I found are not tilted... If this is an error does that mean anything different then if not? I can post pictures of the full coin if you care to see it but have only listed the letter picture right now. I think it's grade would be MS something? 63... not really a grader!

 

Thanks for any and all help.

 

p.s. anytime I've been to New Orleans I have always left a little tilted :ninja: so it's kind of funny.

I Just found this old coin as well. 1921 D. did any of those get double stamped? the 1 looks strange to me. It is late but just wanted to double check. Thanks again.

You will find this link helpful ... look at VAM's after (and including) VAM 10, several of them look like your "O":

It would be a variety since it the mint mark is added to the die as a separate punch. Error is incorrect use of numismatic terminology.
