    1973-S Half Dollar, PR67 Cameo
    Struck Over a 1973-S Quarter

    1973-S 50C Kennedy Half Dollar -- Overstruck on a 1973-S Quarter, Double Denomination -- PR67 Cameo NGC. A proof 1973-S quarter found its way into a bin of proof half dollar planchets, and was struck between 1973-S half dollar dies. Proofs are struck twice, but traces of the undertype remain visible. The 973 in the quarter date is faintly present near the 73 of the half dollar date. San Francisco mintmark of the quarter is apparent near the half dollar's Y in LIBERTY. Both sides are prominently clashed, with the extremities of the Heraldic Eagle device incused and inverted on the field near Kennedy's portrait. The double denomination coin is oblong. It was struck aligned with the collar die at 4:30, and peripheral legends distant from that position exhibit distortion and spreading due to unrestrained metal flow. The types, the date, and motto are complete, as is STATES OF AMERICA, though other legends are partly off the flan. Our online archives show only two prior appearances of Kennedy halves struck on Washington quarters, a 1973-D half on a 1972-D quarter in our April 2016 Central States Signature, and a 1966 half dollar on a quarter in our September 2020 Dallas Signature.
