    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?

    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.

    I would not call this full strike, as the metal voided the die design due to lack of resistance caused by the incomplete planchet.

    My favorite Silver dollar by date is the 80 s as well the 81s 1881 was the year my Grandmother was born in Ireland, she psssed November 1963 the day before Kennedy was assassinated. Katie was a true Irishwoman I do recall my mum asking her durring her last days if she was thirsty? Would you like some water mom? Hell no whisky....her reply..... she was a trip.
