    I asked the teller at the bank a while back if they had any half dollars.
    The teller brought me 12.50 in what I thought were all 40% halfs.
    All except one.
    It really is too bad that it has been damaged.
    64 D TDO
    There isn't a lot of circulation on the coin it still cartwheels. But the damage is unforgivable.

    That's not a 40% half, tho.

    I was hoping that this clarified that.

    Are the photos OK? I play with a camera but I don't drink Dos Equis unless I am at an Authentic Mexican restaurant.

    To bad about the damage as that is an interest TDO. I just found one in my bullion coins this past month, only because another member posted one they found in their spare silver coins.

    Nice! This is my second.
    What do you use to get your close up photos?

    A cell phone with a magnifying lens from an old toy microscope held in place with an elastic.

    Very low tech. But I got three different lenses that I use.

    This seems to be a rather common TDO - but you don't find too many TDO's.

    Does TDO stand for triple

    Yes, Triple Die Obverse
    It doesn't happen very often, but there are others out there.
    There are even Quintuple Die Obverses.

    I'm aware of a couple of Quadruple Dies (4x).

    I'm not aware of any Quintuples (5x). Can you post one? I'm really curious to see that!

    (Note: I'm not saying they don't exist - I'm saying I don't know them)

    Caught me in a wrong word statement.
    You are right meant Four not Five,
    I have never heard of a five faced die.
    My bad.

    I only buy in hand, if I was ever to find one of these, Quad or Quint struck coins you would be the first to see it.
