    It's called an uncentered broadstrike and here's a good write up .

    Thanks but it is actually a cupped broadstrike, I use the same site daily when error checking and this is the same place I found the information on it being a cupped broadstrike.
    Also it was sold via an auction house who labelled it as a cupped broadstrike.

    Here's the write-up I was using (from the same site), the pictures on my link seem to better match my coin than the link you've added.

    Thanks Jamez, it's a beaut!

    I've also been meaning to post 2 rotated double strikes that I've got, one is a 1963.
