Comments

Reprisal of KM#202b issue mintage after 1977 as KM#A202b.

Gilroy Roberts monogram, which some confuse for a hammer and sickle, appears on the truncation.


Type II Proofs have clearer mint marks than Type I Proofs.

Because of low demand, no halves were struck for general circulation in 1987. Beginning in 2002, the half dollar ceased to be struck for general circulation. The coin is found in mint sets and can be purchased from the Mint in rolls and bags, at a premium above face value.
