This is my first post so I will apologize in advance if this the the wrong place. My question is - Would this 1979-S Half be considered a Type-2, Clear S?

to CCF. It is in the wrong section, but no deal a mod will move it. Here is an idea on the types, yours looks like type2. http://www.smalldollars.com/dollar/page29.html

Type 2 mintmark was produced for Proof coinage, yours doesn't look like a proof coin.

In 79 San Francisco only made proof halves, so this is either well worn or something went wrong with it, I'm no expert on proofs though. Some more pictures would help
