Under grade summary, they say the high grade is MS68. I also saw a few 68s on eBay, too. I'm thinking it's legit. Pop #s listed on eBay are all over the place.
I wonder why he has some many if so few exist?
ERROR: I was not signed in to NGC.
26 graded at MS68
Edit: Unless these were dealer bulk submit coins & therefore not put into the NGC populations.
I snipped and posted a page (post #3, above) that shows NGC has graded 290 of them in MS grades.
Will you snip and post what you see?
There are 10 of these listed on Ebay at the moment
Same person (or a few people) submitted them and is looking to sell them all at once. This probably also explains the lower price relative to PCGS examples. If only one NGC MS 68 was listed, it would be easier to price it higher.
Don't forget that PCGS regulates their own price guide. NGC uses an outside (unbiased) source.
$100 bucks for a coin that was made yesterday??...
Sure! As with many of the later Kennedy issues, the mintages are low and the pops are also low. There are probably fewer of these high grade dates than there are registry sets to put them in. I feel confident that at this price the coin is a bargain.
I have lots of Kennedy high grade halves that are more valuable than coins I own from the early 1800s. It is all about mintages and populations. Apparently, the MS Kennedy coins from the 2000s have had low percentages of higher grade coins in MS 68 or 69--very few 70s from certain dates. This was probably due to poor strikes, or just general sloppy quality of the dies. So the ones that exist are commanding high prices, due to limited availability.
Anyone who is serious about collecting Kennedys should buy (a guide book of Franklin and Kennedy Half Dollars) by Rick Tomaska. It is the single most important reference book on Kennedys. A date by date analysis which explains in detail most questions about Kennedys. I probably would not even collect these coins if not for Rick,s book.
