The "Bugs Bunny" Franklin is one of the most well-known varieties in the Franklin series. It's the result of a die clash, which is when the obverse and reverse dies strike each other without a planchet in between them. When this occurs, some of the design elements are transferred between one die to the other. Any coins struck after the dies clashed will show the transferred image. In this case, the eagle's wing on the reverse left a clash mark that makes Franklin look like he has Bugs Bunny's teeth! These half dollars are extremely difficult to find in any sort of quantity. All coins will be in true, brilliant uncirculated quality with exceptional detail and luster.
