Set of 2: 1964 Accented Hair & 1964 Type 2 Kennedy Half Dollar PF66

Description

The Kennedy Half Dollar, designed by Frank Gasparro and Gilroy Roberts, began its mintage in 1964 and continues to be struck to this day. This set of two Kennedy Half Dollars includes both first year of issue Proof Kennedy Half Dollar varieties in Proof 66 condition. These two varieties are called the Accented Hair variety and the “Normal” or Type 2 variety. The Accented Hair variety was the original design for Kennedy Half Dollar, however Jacqueline Kennedy disliked the detailing on JFK’s hair and demanded it be changed. After about 100,000 Accented Hair variety Kennedy Half Dollars were minted, JFK’s hair was reworked and the new Type 2 design has been used ever since. With such a low mintage, the Accented Hair Variety is undoubtedly a tremendous Absolute Rarity. As the first year of issue for Kennedy Half Dollars, the 1964 varieties are among the most highly sought-after examples in the series.
