    Were those coins clad like the 1965-up Kennedy half's ?

    Link could be confusing to newbies. In one place they say they are 80% silver 20% copper clad onto a 79% copper 21% silver core (correct). But in another place they say the coins are clad with 40% silver layers.

    So 1971 is the first year of issue and it appears all the coins minted in 1971 from the San Francisco mint were 40% silver.
     
  7. why didn't the IKE dollar take off the 71 brown proof is worth very little more than what the mint sold for in 1971 I put together a complete set with proofs and all probably would have to work at getting $ 300

    Why do people who have an internet connection ask questions that can be easily answered by looking up the information themselves?

    They were never popular.

    They were minted in large quantities, so they were never scarce.

    They're clad or lower-purity silver, so they were never prime targets for melting or recycling.

    They just sit there, being unpopular, and they probably always will.

    Like many have said before me, if you are looking at coins as an investment you will eventually be disappointed.

    Just wondering if you meant The proofs were all graded PF69.
    Because there are years of the business strikes that PCGS hasn't graded even a MS67.
