With the U.S. Mint’s strict quality standards and careful inspection procedures, most coins with production flaws are detected and destroyed before they leave the facility. But these Uncirculated 2002-P Kennedy half dollars managed to escape the mint with seldom-seen Collar Cud errors!
These scarce errors occurred in the coin press when the collar die bearing the reeded edge design was chipped or cracked. Metal flowed into the damaged area and disrupted the ridged pattern and normal edge of the coins. Because collar dies are lined with an extremely hard tungsten carbide alloy, Collar Cuds are scarce and sought-after coinage errors. Add one of these fascinating Kennedy half dollars to your collection in Uncirculated condition!
