    Franklin Half Struck on a 1948 Cent

    Undated 50C Franklin Half--Struck on a 1948 Cent--MS64 Brown NGC. Lavender and aqua hues embrace this fascinating mint error. The 1948 date from the cent is visible above Franklin's ear. Uncentered toward 2 o'clock, hence only the 19 in the half dollar date is present. The cent legends are ghostly apparent, as commonly seen on elongates. Only 3 million 1948 Franklin halves were struck, which makes the likelihood of finding a similar double denomination error most unlikely.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24SR, PCGS# 6651)
