    Hi guys,

    Just looking at a 2006 ASE I have (know nothing about Eagles) the 13 stars on the back of the coin are at the feet of the Liberty. Is this an error? Basically they are upside down to each other when you turn the coin over.

    Many thanks

    This would not be an error - US coins do not use "medallic orientation" like commonwealth coins. US coins use "Coin Orientation". The coin is designed to be flipped on its horizontal axis to see the other side orientated correctly.
