1985-P 10C image off-center.

I know this is probably nothing.
But, I did my research at https://www.error-ref.com/, I came up with *nothing*.

Is this just within normal manufacturing tolerances?

Thanks, Bob

Looks like a "Misaligned Die Error" to me. Misaligned dies, usually abbreviated MAD , are somewhat common, but many beginners mistake these error coins for the less common true off center coin.
Misaligned die errors occur when the anvil (usually the reverse) die stays in its proper orientation but the upper hammer die becomes misaligned. The result is that the obverse appears to be off center and it is not until you flip the coin over and see that the reverse is still centered that it was struck by a misaligned die.

It’s a MAD. The error it self was very minor, and have rim damage on the reverse of the coin.

Here are outer rim images. I wasn't sure how the lighting and angle would work out for what you need, so I erred on the side of too many!
