Default 1959 Franklin - Is this an error coin?

I found this hunting through half dollars. I don't know much about die cracks but it seems to look like what I have seen others describe them as. Whatever it is, it doesn't appear normal. Is it an error and, importantly, is it worth anything?

Thanks for the help!

Hey Ace, this is a lamination from improperly rolled stock. Your lamination doesn't command a premium because it's so minor. Now this one is a different story:

This extreme lamination sold for $45.

Default Franklin Half

How about an Bugs Bunny One. Its a 1949 Franklin Half with the top lip die break that make it looks like it has buck teeth.
