during the first few issues (Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
etc.). Rotations varied from modest to 180 degrees. It's not clear
whether these were die preparation errors (i.e., the "flat" being
ground in the wrong place), die installation errors, or examples of
dies coming loose and rotating. Maybe all three factors were at work.
Back then, severe rotations commanded prices of up to $200. They may
be worth even more now.
