Great post. Thank you.
I agree that the Kennedy half is an overlooked series for many interesting die varieties.
48 years and still going. Maybe they'll do something for the 50th anniversary.
Yes I think there is. I just bought one and ANACS lists it as a
1964 ANACS PF 63 KENNEDY HALF TYPE-1 STRAIGHT-G! ACCENTED HAIR REV! NORMAL OBV...
I just bought a couple... here is some info I just put together on it..
Those statistics are way off of reality. I expect the total to be closer to 6% or around 250,000.
I would not doubt it but that is the accepted figure.
So...............even though you know what you're saying is incorrect (and severely outdated), you're going to stick by the figure?
I remember reading and hearing somewhere that the 1972 Type 2 IKE only had a mintage of 100,000 even tough nobody really knew for sure since the US Mint officially denied that a Type 2 reverse went into the production presses.
Later studies showed that the Type 2 exists with 2 different Obverse dies which in and of itself, significantly raises the mintage figure to more like 300,000. Probably more.
Things and research changes a lot over time.....................
.................but I guess Hype lives on forever.
Well I have nothing else to go by, do you have anything to support a mintage of 200K? What about 500K? I do know this it is significantly less than 3.5 million.What is the true figure we will never know but I had to start somewhere and people a lot smarter than me came up with that figure. One reason I tend to believe it is the situation and Mrs. Kennedy's involvement in the change, I think it stuck out as being important.
