1971-S Kennedy Half Dollar PF69 Star Cameo

Description

I disagree with NGC on the grade for these coins. I would have called them full "ULTRA CAMEO." NGC decided otherwise, for while the obverses may be ULTRA, the reverses, they believed, were just a little short. Of course a 1971-S in NGC PF69 ULTRA CAMEO is a $4,000 - $5,000 coin, as only 63 have been certified. No 1971-S Kennedy has been certified in PF70 by NGC.

The Kennedy Half Dollar, designed by Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro, was first minted in 1964 and continues to be minted to this day. This 1971 Proof Kennedy Half Dollar was struck at the San Francisco Mint and graded Proof 69 Cameo Star by NGC. Out of all 1971-S Kennedy Half Dollars, only 139 coins have been graded Proof 69 Star Cameo. With no 1971-S Kennedy Half Dollars grading higher than Proof 69 Star Cameo, this coin is among the finest known. NGC’s illustrious Star designation is given only to coins that showcase the highest quality eye appeal for their date and grade.
