    I am a soft touch for 90% silver Kennedy half dollars in my old Social Security years. They don't cost an arm and a leg and they shine. LOL. Picked this one up tonight on ebay. $13.45 shipped. Mainly bought it because of the neat holder. I figger the silver content is around $10.00, so add the shipping, not bad. Can't loose to much on it. I was bored tonight so I thought I would bore you folks to. Enjoy those coins gang.

    I was in Mrs. Watson's third grade class. But unlike many of you, I actually saw JFK with my own two eyes when he was campaigning in my home town. I was 5 years old but I remember. His motorcade was passing VERY close to my grandparents' house, so we went there and walked a very short distance to the corner and saw his open convertible go by as he was waving to the crowd.

    Nice coin as a momento. I was in 2nd grade in a Catholic school. As soon as the
    nuns heard they sent everyone home.

    I was only 6 years old but remember it well. I knew it was bad and had to cry along with all the teachers at school. We were all sent home to be with family.

    I was on my Honeymoon. My wife is from Ireland so you can imagine the damper JFK's assassination put on it. She was devastated so we came home. All her Irish friends were a comfort to her.

    I was on risers (stepped singing platforms) along with many of my fellow students at choir practice at a Catholic High School. We were dismissed - then glued to the TV in the Rec Room.

    I was 12 when Kennedy was killed and my dad had died earlier in the year. Tuff time.

    I was 5 years old living in rural Ohio. I have no memory of the shooting but I remember being very confused when I couldn't find my cartoons because the same funeral procession was on all 3 TV channels.

    I was 4. I don't remember the assassination much but I do remember watching LHO get shot on live TV.
  20. I too am a big fan of Kennedy half dollars and have several, and this one you bought looks very nice. I remember exactly where I was when Kennedy was shot. I was 16 and a senior in high school, and had just come home for lunch. My grandmom was visiting and I still remember she and my mom sobbing when they heard that Kennedy had been shot. We were glued to the tv for the next several days.
