    In my opinion, it looks fine. I don't really like it or dislike it.

    I own one, but only because I bought the 2014 four-coin set. I haven't yet seen a reverse proof that I liked. Not terribly fond of the current laser-pocked "frosting" on normal proofs, either.

    I have some reverse proof coins but I don't like them. They look like they are going to Sunday School. I like coins that look like they are going to work.

    I like them. There are some reverse proofs I haven't cared for (Nickel and Dime come to mind)...but I think the JFK Half looks really sharp.

    I do feel like the whole reverse proof thing has become overdone. It was fun when they only did a couple issues...but now it's getting kind of old in my opinion. But, if they sell...then I guess they will keep making them.

    I own the four-coin set from 2014 and the 2018 reverse proof set. Not all coins make a good-looking reverse proof, but I think the Kennedy is one of them.

    I, too, have the 2014 set and the 2018 set. And I agree; the Kennedy half looks great in reverse proof.

    I also am very fond of how the reverse looks on the enhanced uncirculated/proof strikes. The letters almost seem to glow...

    Edit -
    Pseudo related: a Kennedy strike type set I'm working on.

    I have a full Dansco Kennedy set of gem grade JFKs. I also have all of the clad S proofs. I also own most of the Silver proofs in 70 grade. So, for me, it is a big kick to own the specialty Kennedys. Of the two moderns I collect (Jefferson’s and JFKs), I really like both.

    This is why I love the Reverse proofs, and will continue to buy them as 70s, as they are issued.

    I like these JFK's and like RP's in general, though not all coins look good with a RP (depends on the fields and devices).

    One is a high relief reverse proof and the other is a reverse proof. This 2019 from the Apollo set is an enhanced reverse proof. So all 3 of these coins are different in finishes?

    Nice. I have the 2019 enhanced reverse also. F2C88833-260A-4040-855D-D85B224FDB7E.jpeg 8A5A957B-3D2A-4447-A66F-45CD5FA38B79.jpeg
