1976 d Half Dollar This unique Die Adjustment Strike is a rare exception.. Most modern coins are vastly overpriced and overhyped. They are too common to ever be a good investment, with most having mintages and survival rates in the millions or BILLIONS! This unique Die Adjustment Strike is a rare exception.
Although deliberately made, Die Adjustment Strikes are called Mint Errors because they were supposed to have been destroyed at the Mint but mistakenly entered circulation. Die adjustment strikes, as the name implies, are used to set the distance and the pressure of the dies to the planchet.In this stage of operation, there can be a noticeable lack of detail to the coin. This lack of detail will prevent the coin from being eligible for grading, although it can be readily and accurately attributed. The edge of a die adjustment strike will be either weak or missing.
This is an important difference from a struck thru which has full edge detail. PHOTO #1: 1976-D half dollar, die adjustment strike, obverse. Low pressure did not allow for all of the details of the coin to be present. PHOTO #2: 1976-D half dollar, die adjustment strike, reverse.
