I have a 1941 Lincoln Cent that has the first 1 leaning so far to the right,
that the top of the one is touching the top of the nine.
Is this a common error? and any ideas on how much it could be worth?
condition as I recall is about fine.
thanks.

I doubt it's an error on the die. What probably happened is circulation
damgae, when the edge of another coin knocked the digit over. Therefore, no
value whatsoever.
