    Another coin and rather interesting error spots to me. I noticed plenty of errors but I feel like there is more to this coin than the eye sees. The obverse of this piece makes me curious. I'd like to talk value, but I may just post that another day and just figure out this coin.

    See how the obverse of this coin looks plainly scratched and had little circulation time.

    But how does the reverse have little to pretty much no scratch? I believe this coin must be a strike thru/ strike thru grease error. The front just looks beat and dull compared to the back for whatever reason. I'd like to know some opinions from the coin community!

    Here are some of the errors I spotted on this coin:

    "14th Arrow/Extra Arrow"

    What error is this one though? A die crack?

    And clearer evidence of strike thru grease.

    It may have been holdered in something with backing and that’s how the reverse was protected. At any rate, you got the errors on it, and nice close-up pictures.

    Arrow. Minor Die Crack. No premium.

    All other minor Die Cracks is evidence of a worn Die Strike.. No premium.

    Struck through issues.. No premium.

    Everything else Circulation wear and tear.

    Worth? 50 Cents

    I have 2 1995 half dollars that have an R right on Kennedy's neck. Just above the word We right in the middle of the word.
    Is That an Error?
    How Much Are They Worth

    Edit*.. Like the other members have stated. R would be the initial of the designer.

    I believe you are seeing the designers initials. GR for Gilroy Roberts.

    Should be just an "R" with no G in front of it.

    Two half dollars are worth a dollar.

    More than two 1995 half dollars are worth, which coincidently just so happens to be the question. ;)

    The G is actually there, it is just "stylized" and kind of intertwined with the R.
