    1980-P Kennedy Half, MS65
    Double Denomination Error
    On a 1979-P Anthony Dollar

    1980-P 50C Kennedy Half -- Overstruck on a 1979-P Anthony Dollar -- MS65 NGC. The consignor informs us that the present lot is the only known Kennedy half dollar struck over an Anthony dollar. Also unusual is that two different dates are involved. Most of the eagle and Anthony portrait from the undertype survived the strike between half dollar dies. Much of the Anthony dollar date is readable on the clouds of the half dollar reverse. The half dollar mintmark is bold and the half dollar date is partial, although unquestionably 1980. The dollar mintmark appears near the eagle's right wingtip. Our online auction archives, which date to 1993, show only two other double denomination errors involving Sacagawea dollars; a 1999-P dollar struck over a Georgia quarter and a 1979-P dollar struck over a 1978 Jefferson nickel.
