Hi, I found an error coin in my collection but I dont know what kind it would be or if it would be worth anything.  Is it worth getting graded?

Answer
Hello Josh,

What you have found is a slightly (10%) off center penny. These are pretty common and you will find them for sale for about $5 to $10. Here is a link to one that recently sold on eBay

This one was about 15% off center.
