I noticed this listing on eBay recently. The 2002p penny is obviously struck on a copper plated zinc planchet, but I am having difficulty with the non magnetic 50 cent piece. I suspect the coin was struck on a silver planchet that was meant for proof sets. I would like to hear what everyone else thinks. At any rate this is one fantastic error set.
The seller should take the two odd coins and send it to PCGS or NGC , the only problem with the 50 cent coin is if it's on a silver planchet that's cool but has no wow factor you would have to read the label of the slab to see the error. These two off planchet are worth no where near what the asking price, the penny unless weighed and XRF could be struck on a foreign planchet if that is the case it,s only worth a few hundred, no one would pay near that kind of price unless graded
When you list on ebay a consigned coin, one expects to sell the item at a reasonable price, if graded as off planchet silver and a Canadian non mag penny planchet best of both scenerios maybe 10 to 20K if there is two people bidding crazy over this but 50K, if you were just drawing attention ask 100K, now everyone would be checking 2002 sets
