    Sorry meant to be a question not a statement. ?????Found this Kennedy at a sale. The color is different, and it has a predominately dangling four. Heavy die polishing marks, and a raised strike, breaks in star rays 11 through 14. The chunk of metal coming off of the crosslet of the four is very raised.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    All of the 64 SMS coins were found in the estate of a former director in the 80s. These coins were then certified by a TPG and auctioned. Did you get it from someone with family ties to an old high level mint employee?

    If you believe that someone took a slabbed coin, cracked it out, then spent it at face value even though it was 90% silver, and you got it CRHing, then you may want to send it to a TPG.

    Or better yet, ask the guys on YouTube who post about finding rare 64 SMS coins in change how they got into circulation. It's a darn shame, the never give you all the info.

    Sorry to be snarky, but the "Get Rich From Pocket change " YouTube hacks really do a disservice to the hobby. My agitiation is towards them, not you
