    Struck from the regular half dollar dies from 1868. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. According to USPatterns.com: "These were deliberately struck to show how easily aluminum coined ... " Cased sets were also produced of the various denominations, and one or two are still intact. The bright surfaces show just the faintest streakiness at the top of the obverse.
