1966 SMS Kennedy Half Dollar NGC MS69 Cameo Tomaska Signature


From 1965 to 1967, the US Mint did not produce Proof issues of the Kennedy Half Dollar series. Instead, Special Mint Sets were struck which have similarities to both Circulation and Proof issues. Similar to Proof examples, Special Mint Set coins were struck using polished dies. Unlike Proof examples these coins were not struck multiple times or individually handled, making high grade examples difficult to acquire. This specific SMS Kennedy Half Dollar was struck in 1966 and is graded in Mint State 69 Cameo condition. To add to the rarity of this stunning coin, is has been housed in Rick Tomaska's exclusive Signature series holder. These renowned holders are only given to Kennedy Half Dollars that Rick Tomaska has inspected and deemed to exhibit the highest quality luster and eye appeal for their date and grade. Out of every 1966 SMS Kennedy Half Dollar struck, only 8 have been graded in Mint State 69 condition with just 1 single example housed in the Tomaska Signature Series holder. With such a low population, this coin is considered a Condition Rarity.
