Out of the 1,800,000 Special Mint Set Kennedy Half Dollars struck in 1967, there are only a miniscule 282 that have been graded MS68 Cameo between NGC and PCGS. Special Mint Sets, or SMS, were struck from 1965 to 1967 in the place of proof coins. Like proof coins, SMS coins had their dies pickled in order to impart a frosty finish to design elements. Unlike proof coins, however, SMS coin planchets are not burnished and only receive a single strike. With just one strike from the coin die, it is rare to obtain an example such as this one with such clear devices and eyepopping cameo contrast.
