    Mated Error Pair 1976-D Halves
    Brockage and Reverse Die Cap

    1976-D 50C Clad Bicentennial Half Mated Error Pair PCGS. Coin #1 is graded MS65 and described as Obverse Die Cap, Brockage Reverse. Coin #2 is certified as MS62 with the notation Reverse Cap Counterbrockage Obverse. The story of this error begins with a normal first strike for Coin #2. However, it stuck to the reverse die and failed to eject. Coin #1 was then fed and struck between the obverse die and Coin #2. The obverse of Coin #1 and the reverse of Coin #2 exhibit curved knife rims of various depth. A light X was pinscratched on the cheek of Coin #2 by a curious finder.
