Nothing worth grading.
melt value, but hey... nice find!
I hit a pretty good cache of these 40% coins in some bank rolls about a decade ago. With the exception of one clad Bicentennial coin and one 90% silver 1964 coin, everything in the batch (of about three rolls, as I recall) was a 40% silver half. That was a nice lick. I owed it to a friendly teller who knew I was a coin geek, and set them aside for me.
Yeah, sounds about right. A dealer would probably buy them a little below spot price, but if those are coin roll hunting finds, you're still coming out ahead.
According to the Coinflation calculator, 16 pieces of 40% silver Kennedies should be worth $37.43 as of this post, based on $2.34 per coin.
Not bad for $8.00 worth of face value finds.
Those are the years that the 40% silver Kennedys were produced, but if you are lucky enough to find a '70D, I'd hold onto it because it was only produced for the Mint Set, not for general circulation.
No, Most all Bi-cen halfs found in circulation will be copper clad. They were made in Silver Clad for mint sets. I think they would be rarely found CRH, same as a 1970-D.
