118 Mint Error Draped Bust half dollar, NGC XF details, cleaned. Mint error Draped Bust halves are rare, and though this isn't a double struck or off center strike, it is still a bungled job by the fledgling US Mint, and is therefore an important part of the history and fabric of the times. And, the cleaning wasn't any more than a light soap and water wash back in the 1920's or something of course, that is just a guess on our part. The 1920's, not the soap and water. That we're sure of.This coin is well struck, has great original toning, no hairlines and very solid luster. In fact, we don't think it should have been flagged at all, and would grade the coin a very nice XF. The luster doesn't lie. Our loss is your gain!
