    Sounds like an ordinary Bicentennial Half. Am I missing something? Please post photos if you have something out of the ordinary.

    They made 1976 coins that were dual dated to commemorate the U.S.A.'s bicentennial. They made tons of them, so they're very common, and generally only worth face value.

    A little bit of grammar education goes a long way. Or just try to use coherent sentences, at least.

    Yeah. Aside from trying to figure out where to end each thought, I had to really think what a "bildin" was. It helped when I realized he was talking about Independence Hall.

    I think the best way to assist us in understanding what it is you are trying to explain, is to post a couple of photo's of your coin. Welcome to the Forums.

    Well, there was no question asked. I think he was simply telling us what a bicentennial half dollar looks like. Just a little bit of very hard to read information.

    Quite possibly.

    True. But maybe English isn't this posters first language. Or he just uses poor grammar. So what? Most of us are here to help. So if someone is seeking information about a coin they have, they should be able to get it here. No need to turn the whole thread into picking apart someone's post for grammar and spelling errors.

    Ok, you could be right. But most languages have sentences, commas, and periods. I'm just saying, it could help to read it with some punctuation.

    Did it ever occur to you that maybe, JUST MAYBE, English is the OP's second language?

    Yes it could, but as stated, if English is the OP's second language, they're not well versed on proper grammar or punctuation.

    Cut the guy some slack!

    Well it's a little late on this one, since those comments were from April. However, I doubt he used an online translator. The misspelling of the word "building" wouldn't happen, and using "write" for "right" wouldn't have happened. I suppose English could have been a learned 2nd language from a while back, and the OP was drawing on old knowledge to try to translate.
    But I kind of doubt it. He's asking about a US coin, which would suggest he's in the US. And if he doesn't speak English, Spanish would be the other likely choice. And Spanish has a very similar structure to English.

    You can't sell things outside of the Classifieds forum. And also, $25/roll is about $15 more than they're worth. Bicentennials are the highest mintage halves, and are very readily available. Even in BU you aren't talking much of a premium.
    Edited. someone might take you up.

    Mi moneda no tiene d en él, pero tiene ar en el cuello por encima de la que en la parte posterior tiene un bildin y debajo de ella dice el Independence Hall en el lado izquierdo decir 200 años de la libertad en la escritura que tiene unum e pluribus y la u pero es escribir bajo la l tiene 13 miradas por encima del medio dólar .....

    Meine Medaille hat keine d auf sie hat aber ar am Hals über den wir auf der Rückseite hat es eine bildin und unter seiner Unabhängigkeit Halle auf der linken Seite sagen, sagen, 200 Jahre Freiheit auf dem Schreiben hat e und pluribus unum aber die u wird unter dem l schreiben hat 13 starrt über dem halben Dollar .....

    Ma pièce n'a pas d mais a déjà un ar sur le cou au-dessus du nous sur le dos, il a une bildin et sous le disent hall d'indépendance sur le côté gauche soit 200 ans de liberté sur l'écriture qu'il a unum e pluribus et mais l'u est d'écrire sous la l a 13 regards au-dessus du demi-dollar .....

    I would think that all languages have grammar and punctuation rules.
  19. BUncirculated

    BUncirculated Well-Known Member

    You're absolutely correct.

    However, how versed are you in grammar and punctuation rules of a language you don't use everyday, or use it as a second language?
  20. rickmp

    rickmp USDA PRIME

    Not very. However, not much difference in them between languages.

    You would be surprised on the difference.
