Proof (1965-70) 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollar
On Detached Scrap Layer
Elliptical Strike Clip with Brockage Reverse
PCGS PR 63
This is a unique 40% silver Kennedy Half Dollar struck on an elliptical strike clip with a brockage reverse. It is also considered struck scrap but it is actually an elliptical strike clip.
In 1975 (as shown below), in my mint error catalog I offered a proof Kennedy Half Dollar mated set of two coins struck together. The elliptical strike clip was sheared off from the planchet creating three pieces to this mated set.
The silver elliptical strike clip with the brockage reverse offered here is now the second known elliptical strike clip Kennedy Half Dollar in proof, but the only one
known in silver.
|From 1974 - 1978 I mailed out over 25 price lists of major mint errors. My all time favorite was my first catalog which was photographed, printed and distributed in 1975 by John Devine (Lonesome John) from Newbury Park, CA. It was a 26 page catalog containing the finest major mint errors with photographs, descriptions and prices.|
