Exceedingly Rare 1965 Half Dollar Deep Obverse Die CapPossibly Struck from SMS Dies1965 Kennedy Half Dollar--Obverse Die Cap--MS-64 (NGC).This is an intriguing Mint error, rare as certified, and perhaps even rarer if determined that it was struck from SMS dies. The grade on the NGC insert identifies this obverse die cap as having been produced from circulation strikes dies and, while that it how this coin is being offered here, the obverse impression is not all that dissimilar to what one would expect to see in a Special Mint Set Kennedy half dollar from the 1965 to 1967 era. The field is bright and semi-reflective, the design elements fully rendered with a satin to modestly semi-reflective finish. The reverse bears only a flattened and distended Kennedy portrait -- a late stage brockage that, when taken in conjunction with the awesome depth of the die cap, points to multiple strikings from this capped die before the error was discovered or freed itself from the press. Both sides are bright, brilliant and highly attractive.The brevity of the silver clad Kennedy half dollar subseries of 1965 to 1970 means that major Mint errors involving this coinage are rare. The Special Mint Set coinage of the era was even shorter-lived, produced only from 1965 to 1967, so if this die cap were confirmed to be from SMS dies its rarity would be even greater. An outstanding piece that is sure to see spirited bidding among astute Mint error collectors.Click here for certification details from NGC.
