    The coin has post mint damage. Damaged after it left the mint. Looks like either exposure to extreme heat or some sort of corrosive.

    Finish is 'finished', as in 'run over by a truck'......

    Heres my real problom the box of 1000 halves came from loomis.zero silver and basically all poor condition.im kinda thinking not only do they scavange all silver but theyre also only redistributing the culls.not to mention charging a premium.could that be so?

    Blast, you make no sense at all. Is the coin silver? If so, it's worth spot. If it's otherwise, spend it or put in your pocket to 'wow' young ladies at the checkout when you make change. I find the Spanish girls to be most curious. Black and white girls nary bat an eye........

    I think that your both correct i believe that the coinage is almost intentionally damaged by whatever proscess the big companies use to re roll and re distribute coinage and that they also pull all silver.if so is the only market left for collecting the error market.should i hold on to all my silver coinage and never let it be enjoyed by future generations.

    Looks like they may have spent time in a casino.

    Ahhhh thank you sir.i believe you are correct.a casino would account for almost no reeding and for as green puts it the trucklike finish!im off to the local mini mart then.allllll abord

    The word "uniform" in numismatic terminology is similar to "shiny". It shouldn't exist. ~ Chris

    When buying boxes of halves you have to get used to a lot of junk.

    It's damaged. Nothing else to say. It's a spender. It's worth fifty cents.
