1796 Rotated die question
I've come across a 1796, worn smooth on both surfaces with scarcely a recognizable feature. The only thing that's obvious is it's almost 180 degrees rotated........ medallic orientation. I didn't think too much about it until I read something in Penny-Wise, and now I'm really stretching my memory, about what I thought was a 1796 170 degree rotation, I think it was an R-5 or R-6, and the statement (in Penny-Wise, I think) went something like,
" It's an S-??, 1796, and of course, it shows the 170 degree die rotation".
I was under the impression that die rotation errors were pretty much hit and miss errors, but whatever I read, and I can't find it now to save my life, made it sound like this particular Sheldon variety was known for having this error, and it was fairly rare.
Does any of this sound even remotely recognizable to you guys? Thanks for your help........clorox
