1967 Half Dollar Error Guide

1967 Half Dollar Errors(Click to Enlarge Image)

This coin was plagued with errors. Here are the most notable. If you find this helpful please share this page.

Struck on 25C (Quarter Planchet) - Struck on a .25 cent or quarter planchet. When a quarter planchet is accidentally mixed with the regular 40% silver half dollars then this error occurs. These errors are selling for between $500 and $2000 dollars depending upon condition.

Struck on Defective Planchet - When a planchet metal is damaged before or after being punched from the original sheet of metal and or upon transfer to the dies the end result will be a Defective Planchet. If that defective planchet makes its way into the population it is a Defective Planchet error. Selling for $100 to $300 coin will often weigh less than the original 11.5g a normal planchet would weigh.

Lamination (Clamshell & More) - Lamination errors occur when the outer coating or lamination is missing or has been disturbed during the manufacturing process.

Struck on Thin Planchet - This coin will appear slightly thinner and lighter than the original 11.50 grams the 40% silver half dollars are supposed to weigh. Selling for a few hundred dollars. $100 to $400

DDO / DDR (Double Die / Double Strike) - When the die strikes the planchet more than once it creates a double die error. When searching for these coins be sure to look closely at the lettering for extra edges. These are the tell tale signs of a Double Die or Double Strike error.

Double Die Half Dollar Error(Double Die Half Dollar Error)

Struck Through - Struck through errors occur when a foreign material is interjected between the die and the planchet. In the case of the 1967 Half Dollar this has been documented with foreign substances such as grease and just plain struck through. Grease is used to lubricate the die but if not applied perfectly can create defects / errors like this. Selling for $80 to $400

Curved Clip - When a planchet is clipped a portion of it is cut and removed. The clipping likey gets swept up and thrown away, but the coin itself often makes it into circulation. A curved clip is exactly what it sounds like, a clip that has a curved shape. It usually looks like a crescent moon. Valued somewhere between $80 and $350.

Straight Clipped - Similar to the curved clip error, the straight clip looks like someone took a pair of scissors and cut off a straight piece of the planchet. Straight clip errors are rarer than curved clip They may be caused when the planchet is punched near the edge of the planchets sheet of metal. Selling for $100 or so.

Ragged Edge Clip - A ragged edge clip is similar to the other clippings but the edge appears ragged as if cut by a pair of old dull scissors. If you have ever cut paper with a pair of dull scissors then you know what we are referring to too. Selling for $100 or so.

Johna Thurstan: So these are silver or they are not? I have one dated 2012, and was thinking they are not. Approved: November 1, 2022 4:12 pm

Admin: @JohnaThurstan Modern Kennedys are normally not silver. The San Francisco mint has proof and silver proof Kennedy Half Dollars, but these are only available through the United States mint. The coin on this page the 1967 Kennedy Half Dollar is silver however. Kennedies issued from 1965 to 1970 are 40% silver, and those issued in 1964 are 90% silver. Approved: November 1, 2022 4:12 pm
