Lot Description
1970-D 50C MS67 PCGS. Sharply struck and nearly brilliant with booming luster and pleasing surfaces. Released only as part of the 1970 Mint Set, the 1970-D was the final business strike issue of the type struck with a 40% silver alloy, although silver clad Bicentennial Halves were later produced. 1970-D Kennedy Halves were worth a substantial premium above face upon issue, yet are virtually unheard of in the MS67 grade, most likely due to indifferent strikes and handling at the Mint. PCGS and NGC combined have certified a mere four pieces with none higher.
