Off-Center (Offset) Error (Minting error)
The place to go to see spectacular minting errors like yours in MikeByers.com. Your off center Lincoln cent sounds to be about 20 percent offset, so it would probably draw bids of $10 to $20 US dollars on eBay. The value of off-center strikes depends on the amount off-center. The coin in the picture is about 30 percent off-center. Were it 60 percent off-center, the value would probably double to about $40.
