<IMG HEIGHT="1" SRC="http://www.stujoe.com/images/invdot.gif" WIDTH="25" BORDER="0">As the bins that are used to transport blank planchets around the mint get used and reused, occasionally a planchet from one denomination will end up stuck in a bin that is then filled with planchets for another denomination. That is what most likely occurred with this coin. A silver dime planchet ended up stuck in a bin that was then filled with half dollar planchets. That dime planchet then entered the striking chamber and was struck by the Franklin Half dies. This makes for a very unusual looking error coin.
