    It's hiccups. Sometimes the strikes do that, they hiccup like that. Any jarring of the planchet in the collar when it was struck by normal dies will leave that on the coin.

    :p:pUGH! This is really frustrating!! Not at you, lol!! I have been trying to figure this stuff out over 2 years now! I’ve added side by side photos of my coin along with the DDO-007 from Variety Vista. Does anyone else see why I would think that my coin is the same? Or am I actually still seeing what I want to see?! I really enjoy looking at these every chance I get! They are all gorgeous! And it def beats listening to other people’s marriage issues every day and trying to save the day, but maybe one of you should just send me your ENTIRE collection!! So I can see the real deal, lol! And then I can find my million dollar coin and live happily ever after. That’s it! I don’t ask for much!!!!

    Wow , I don't know what to tell you . I personally think and this is my own opinion, If you need a microscope to see it , then why would I be interested in buying . If it's for just having in your collection then send it out for attribution . It's a tough one if you ask me and if not then maybe others can chime in / Good Luck . :)

    OK, I'm not saying this is going to hold you, but I'm trying, so give me that much...

    First off, look at the flat ones. That's simply from grease in those crevasses when the planchet was struck. That's not an error. Now, look at the rest of them. They're all intact images. If they were doubled, they'd look that same way, but with a part of the image underneath poking out against it. The things you're seeing at that magnification are the remnants of the die after having lifted off the planchet. The planchets are warmed to soften them up. The dies are hot from the pounding, which is why they have to be greased, or they'll seize up. The planchets and dies stick ever so much, and what you're seeing under this high magnification is how the coins look for that. And some look better, some look worse.

    Thank you for the advice! I def agree! I usually use a loupe or magnifying glass for viewing and I mostly use a microscope for photos or when I’m stuck on something for hours and my eyes just stop working! Lol. And I’m really not a seller! I’ve collected coins since i was a kid! 30 years later- I’m finally having a look at them! I have never spent a coin, and my 4 kids now keep all theirs as well (sadly, for themselves!! So selfish, I know!!!) I have mostly been working on organizing, just get sidetracked every few minutes by seeing something shiny and pretty! Lol!

    I think the damage on your half dollar makes it very hard, if not near impossible to make an attribution.
