COIN PURCHASE WITH A SURPRISE
Entry posted by Wissahickon Collection ·
COULD THIS BE A NEW DESCOVERY?
The mail man delivered my latest purchase today - a 1943-D 50 Cent, NGC MS-66. With my usual excitement, I tore open the package; scanned both sides of this new "gem"; and then focused in with my 5X glass for a closer look.
Immediately, upon scrutinizing the reverse, I noticed "something" about the mint mark. It just looked different. So I went to the 15X microscope, and sure enough- there is a clear repunching of the MM to the North.
I grabbed my copy of Kevin Flynn's "Treasure Hunting Walking Liberty Half Dollars": He lists two RPM's, neither of which is positioned anything like this one.
So, is this a descovery coin?
Does anyone have this anomoly lying in their collection?
Grab your 1943-D halves, and see if you have a surprise hiding in your collection!!
