    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.

    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    So...............even though you know what you're saying is incorrect (and severely outdated), you're going to stick by the figure?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.
