1976D Half Dollar

Yeah, my first indirect question.



Stephen Searer of http://www.stephensearer.com/ made a comment on the coin he has at the top right hand side. He owns a nice Bicentennial Kennedy Half Dollar. Here's the stats...

Year: 1776-1976D (the D is for Denver one of the U.S. mints)
Metal: Copper-nickel clad (there is a silver version that exist)
Mintage: 287,565,248 (the most common of all Kennedy Halves)
Value: MS-63 $1.50 (MS is mint state)

Coin grades range generally from 1 to 70, 1 being barely readable and 70 being judged perfect/flawless. Stephen's coin would rank low because it's relatively new yet has lots of surface scratches. So it only has the $0.50 face value maybe as time goes on or if they change the Half Dollar design it may increase in value like the Quarters did.

Thanks for the visit.

16 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

Thanks for the info :)

I found a coin while I was searching for laundry quarters today.

It has a woman's head on one side and the other has some sort of axe-looking thing with a plant. I am fairly certain the date is 1926, although it isn't in the best of shape. It also says "liberty" above the woman's head.

Dime size and color. Hope this is enough info :)

I have been going through a huge jar of change and found a 1983 Kennedy 50 cent piece and it looked a little funny so I used a magnifier and the face has what looks like doubling on the eye and lips. Does that do anything to the value?

Although it is not listed anywhere it maybe a true doubled die but it has to be seen by an expert.

That said it is most likely machine doubling which has no extra value.

I have a 1974, 1993 and 1994 USA half dollars that look mint condition. How much are they and how can I tell if their real?

1974, 1993 and 1994 USA half dollars that look mint condition.

In mint state they are about $1.00 each.

And no one fakes these since they are such low value.
