      Hello Aaron,

      Your 1915-S Pan Pac half is known with two
      different repunched mintmarks (See Breen's book)

      In general, commemorative errors are much scarcer
      than normal issues, mainly because the mintages
      were so much less, and the dies struck less coins.

      Repunched mintmarks, re-cut dies, die-cracks, etc.
      are all known on Commems., but not all series of
      them have nice die errors......

      Clips are quite rare, but known, and other major
      errors (off-centers, double strikes, etc.) are just
      about non-existant.

      Fred Weinberg
