You just beat me. Lol
Awesome. Let is see those 40 and 90 percent silver halves!!!!! Good luck and of course, update us here. We would love to read and see the results.
Please post photos of what you find and might have questions about.
Just as a side note, I'm sort of fussy about giving information about a coin or currency from photos, so advise members to do the following.
You should always post in focus FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and is easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
Also, you may wish to invest in an inexpensive USB camera/microscope to photograph your finds. Just do a search online and many will show up.
Welcome to CT.
As others said before those are coin rolling marks and you'll see them on other denominations as well.
I have probably seen these marks on half dollars more than on other denominations, maybe because half dollars are larger than other coins so they have a greater chance at being scraped.
Best of luck on your coin searching, and congratulations on the 1964 Kennedy! I have never found a silver half dollar while coin roll hunting, so you've already beat me
Not a weird finish, that is gem quality, without the coin roller marks.
