    I just bought an unusual error with very poor pictures from a seller with zero transactions on eBay.... What the worst that can happen? Also important to note that I was able to beat out exactly zero other bidders for this beauty.

    Not everthing that looks unusual or different makes it a mint error. Could be an altered damaged coin.

    You didn't state exactly what that "unusual error" was. Nor how it occurred during the minting process.

    It’s a 1996-D Kennedy half with a retained struck through wire on the back.

    I found a very cool retained struck through staple coin roll hunting a few years back. This eBay one looks cool if it is what it says it is.

    I’ll post a link if I can figure out how from my phone.

    We would love to see that. I'm having my doubts about it though.

    Not trying to be rude, but why post this without pictures. Need Full Obv. and Rev. and of the possible error.

    screen snap shot .... something that can lead us to it.
    use the "share" ... or "copy link" ....
    there are a multitude of methods to get us information.

    Shoot, I could probably search eBay and find it right from here!

    CBC48571-829D-4E74-82B8-EFA2D019EEF0.png Option 4: buyer cancelled order. No idea why. Need to contact eBay for more info. Had another item I was bidding on that the bid got cancelled. Not sure what’s going on.

    Those cooper strips are evasive things. I would have cancelled it if mine, just due to that, Jim

    Forget ebay, contact the seller and ask why.

    they got blasted by some other coin group about it not being what he thought it was ... a million dollar find ... instead of the discolored peed on half dollar it was ...
