CRH find need help on the reverse of the JFK Half Dollar
I Opened a box of half dollars to find this ender staring at me. I finally decided to open the roll and see what it was. It was a 1997 D JFK half dollar with what looks like the imprint of a planchet ribbon that left over from punching out nickel planchets. I can't explain the reverse, but maybe someone else can. I can only think that the left over Nickel ribbon made its way into a a water bath and the Half dollar ended up resting on it ,but how did the coin and the ribbon happen to nest together. How can nickel ribbon and a half dollar meet like this in the minting process? Thanks for any idea that someone might have.
