1945-S Walking Liberty Half, MS63
Double Struck, Second Strike 55% Off Center
#36 in
100 Greatest U.S. Error Coins

1945-S 50C Walking Liberty Half Dollar -- Double Struck, Second Strike 55% Off Center -- MS63 PCGS. Trumpet tail S. This exact coin is plated under #36 in the 2010 edition of 100 Greatest U.S. Error Coins, where it is described as "the most dramatic multi-struck Liberty Walking half dollar known." After the normal first strike, the piece failed to fully eject from the dies. It was struck again, widely off center, toward 6:30. The second strike is centered at 8:30 relative to the first strike. The mintmark is visible from the first strike where the two strikes overlap. This dramatic mint error is satiny and bagmark-free, and exhibits delicate ice-blue and chestnut-gold toning. A coin counter has left an inconspicuous patch of hairlines on the eagle's right (facing) wing from the first strike.
