I have NOT seen one, so if you were to post up some pictures of the one you have, then I could say yes, but until then. it stays no.

You could have one that is not listed. But in order for us to give an opinion on something, no I've not heard of that before, but I didn't know about the listed ones on V.V either. But to prove/or not is done by seeing images. You could have a doubled die and have flat field doubling, or a doubled die and have Machine Doubling. Depending on which strike the Machine Doubling happened in this case it would be a doubled die with the secondary issue. Or if it is not a doubled die, you could have flat field doubling and Machine Doubling. Then it would be considered as a normal coin with MD or flat field doubling. (Not a doubled die) Example:

So by providing images we could determine what you have.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, you can now you can see the DVD in sections on youtube:
1. Intro, older coins, toned coins 2. Doubled dies 3. Die events, One of a kind errors 4. So called errors, Coin information 5. Coin information Types and Varieties, Overlays

Be glad to check it out to see what is there. Most of the nice Franklin proofs have large spreads on the reverses:

(not the same year) But these are easier to see. Look for the spread on the center of devices.

I'm really not into shaming folks even when they may be behaving shamefully (as often am I so doing)

I read your question. It calls for a "no" or a "yes." There are plenty of "no's" within your reach if you include everyone who's never come across a 1957 proof half. Yes is more elusive, methinks.

If you do get a "yes," is it OK if the responder appends, "but I refuse to discuss it!"?

That's unlikely to come from CCF's side of the interchange.

Given the option of choosing between a very interesting coin or a rather valuable one, I'd choose the former every time . My vexation lies in the fact that the two so often coincide.

My 57 proof set is still sealed. Wondering if I should take a peek at it now.
