Something just neat about it, not sure if they are very collectible, but neat coin.
Says you found $6.5756
What's the reverse look like? Other than cracked maybe a planchet flaw
or on a long shot some sort of wire strike through. Wire being from a bristle
from a brush used to clean the dies.
I guess a crack would be some sort of planchet flaw
I think when the metal doesn't flow properly, due to contamination, it's called a lamination flaw
There are different types of lamination flaws IIRC
Increased value in Franklin Halves is in the BELL strike. Some of the bell bands fail to appear in the striking.
Never seen anything that new like that.
Back of the coin looks normal, no flaws. Coin is not bent, I guess it's a lamination issue. Thanks for info gent's.
...I'm actually missing a 1954 franklin half...
Looks like it got run over on I-95.
