I've seen various rim widths on 1971 halves (there are a LOT of 1971 halves). I'm not sure what causes the variation, but I don't think it's significant.
It seems a lot of 1971 halves have wide rims like that. I don’t know why but it’s common for that date.
The 1971 looks normal to me, except for the wear.
Thank you for the info. Back into the coin rolls they go then! Back to the bank.
Thank you for this very helpful post. Very welcoming to a new guy.
Thank you for the info now I know proofs only come from San fran mint I was not aware of that.
There are some non SF proofs. Any proofs 1964 and older are Philadelphia minted. Also, there have been some other mint proofs as special releases. But for the most part, S mint has been the only modern circulation coin proofs.
.50C + .50C = $1.00
To answer your what's it worth question.
Red Book. That will tell you the information you need to know about where Proof coins were minted. You could buy an old one (but not too old) for less than the current cover price which is something like $16.
