I really like die rotations and that chicken is well worn. Nice coin.

If you use the two stars on either side of TWENTY CENTS as the measurement (they are level on a normal coin), it appears that the coin has about 80-degrees rotation.  90 degrees would make them exactly vertical.  So far, 80 is the largest rotation we've seen.  Not too long ago, I found an XF with 80-degree rotation, replacing another Good example.  There are rumors of one more rotated than 80, but I've yet to see it.  Still looking!  I agree, rotations are neat, and the BF-16 is the die marriage for that!  Thanks for sharing!
