PCGS 50c Kennedy Half Struck on Cent Planchet MS64 BN

Business Strike
Mint Error
Country/Region of Manufacture:
United States

PCGS no date Kennedy half struck on a copper alloy Lincoln cent planchet. The coin is from the 1960's in our opinion, based on the design, and has small flecks of what appears to be silver struck into the surfaces. It is struck on the much smaller Lincoln cent copper alloy planchet, and would weigh around 3.1 grams. It is also far smaller diameter than a normal half dollar, with virtually all of the outer lettering missing, as well as large portions of Kennedy and the date. 


The error occurred when a Lincoln cent planchet was struck with half dollar dies. This can occur when a cent planchet is accidentally left in a tote bin, and the bin is then used to transport half dollar planchets. The planchets are then all fed into a half dollar press, and when the cent planchet is struck, this off-metal is the result.


MS64 with pleasing brown surfaces, and mint red visible around the edges of the design elements. The strike is fairly sharp, which gives the coin better eye-appeal.
