Why such specific years?

Here is OMM FS-511 D/D/D/S
It is hard MM to capture in a slab.
Always find the clipped planchet errors particularly interesting and this one is quite something: almost a complete "AMERICA" for the reverse legend. One would "suspect" part of the legend would be missing since a particular planchet piece was missing when the reverse was stamped. Therefore, the question is: what was the source of the metal that filled the reverse die when the minting process was performed?
1958 - I was born.
1858 - 100 years before I was born.
1893 - Birthyear of my maternal grandmother.
My question is: are those die clash marks on the reverse; especially between
the "H" and "A" in the HALF ??
And die break between "S OF" on the reverse also?
And let's not worry about the obverse.
Yes. If you look, you can just about see a whole clashed outline of a seated Liberty on the reverse. For example, look from the D in UNITED to the F in OF and you can see the entire base that Liberty is seated on.
Oh, sentimental. I don't like 1973 currency. haha
That is a monster half dime Skyman! Wow!!!
I would not call this full strike, as the metal voided the die design due to lack of resistance caused by the incomplete planchet.
Ain't that a coincidence! That's the year my maternal grandmother was born.
