Lot Description
1981-P 50C Kennedy Half -- Huge Broadstrike & 90% Indent -- MS60 PCGS. Incorrectly listed as a 1981-D on the insert, but the date and P mintmark are complete and clear. Two planchets were fed instead of one, slightly misaligned in a manner that blocked the collar die. The bottom planchet became the present coin, struck between the reverse die and the top planchet, with the top planchet indenting most of the obverse of the present piece but fortituously allowing the date and mintmark. The almond-gold and gunmetal surfaces are lightly hairlined.
