Commemorative Half Dollar
PCGS Designation: 145160
Obverse Die: Double Die Obverse FS-101
Reverse Die: Normal Die
This is the coin listed in the "Cherry Pickers Guide" for sure and has all the markers we look for in addition to the obverse doubling. The correct die crack through Lee's hat is there and the die gouge below Jackson's arm is there, but faint.
The reverse strike is strong with nearly a full complement of stars visible. To add to the eye appeal there is just a little bit of toning on both sides. With a little bit of orange and a little bit of pale green this would be early second cycle toning.
This is just a very nice example of the FS-101 variety with some eye appeal thrown in for good measure.
