    1944 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, MS62
    Broadstruck and Off-Center

    1944 50C Walking Liberty Half -- Uncentered Broadstrike -- MS62 PCGS. This is a seldom-seen Walking Liberty half dollar mint error, possibly the only one we have seen. The design is fully rendered on both sides -- although struck slightly off-center west -- with a wide crescent of unstruck flan along the left-side margin on both obverse and reverse. All Walking Liberty errors are scarce, and only a few off-center strikes are reported. Here is a dual error, since the coin is also broadstruck, as if it was struck with the planchet sitting atop the collar. Dramatic mint errors happen when a planchet is only slightly oversized, which may have been the case here. The fact that the coin is Mint State, with pleasing golden-gray patina and soft mint luster, adds to its considerable appeal.
