Re: Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

Thanks everyone for your comments, I am doing a lot of reading. Bill I read your post of Sept4/08 on error vs variety, do I understand correctly that a variety is a number of coins minted the same and an error coin is a single coin with die chip, a dot or something of that nature? Missing beads is l...

1969 Dollar, is this a die chip or a dot

I could not find this chip/dot in the list of errors and varieties for the 69 dollar. Does the shape or location have anything to do with the difference between dot vs chip?

1982 Constitution Dollar, Die error? or what if anything

Photo 2 is a closeup of the same book on another coin. The yellow arrow points at the corner that is flatted in the shape of a dog-ear triangle. The coin...

Re: Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

I see the 1942 nickel had polishing listed in the errors and varieties. The 1978, 1995 and 1998 nickel had polishing listed unde...

Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

While examining my 64 half dollars along with other years with the same design I came across the unicorn in the attached photo. (10X) The arrows point to the areas that caught my interest.
