Misplaced Date

A misplaced date is simply one or more digits placed somewhere on the die other than where it belongs. Misplaced dates are a very exciting way to collect Indian Cents, as they can occur almost any where on the obverse. This type of variety was made popular by Kevin Flynn with the release of ‘Two Dates are Better than One‘ in 1997. Roughly half of all specimens in the book came from the Indian Head Cent series.
