2019-S Kennedy Addition

Coins-United States | slybluenote

Top O' the morning fellow coin folks!

     Today's post is going to be "short, but sweet"!  Since I read “AC coin$’s” post in reference to Kennedy half Dollars, I just wanted to share this beauty that I recently picked up. It was one of those "I saw it, I wanted it, so I bought it" purchases. As far as specifications go, I'll just quote the USA Coin Book article:

     As always, stay safe, HEALTHY, and coronavirus free! I've also added another of "Life's Lessons" in the pictures below. I want to thank "AC coin$" for posting as Paul Harvey would put it, "the rest of the story" ! Talk to everyone again soon!

P.S. I corrected my original post to give credit where credit’s due to AC coin$ vice “that CoinGuy” ! Sorry for the inconvenience folks!

I bought one of these directly from the mint. Subsequently, I had it graded by NGC at PF-70 like yours. You're right, and this is one of those you see it, you want it, you buy it coins.

I bought the Apollo set when it was released. A month or so ago I saw the Denver half, not the Kennedy, in this black core and bought it followed by the San Francisco proof, both in a 70 grade, simply because it enhances the moon landing/space theme perfectly. The Kennedy is on my list as well.

100k mintage is not a lot. Nice coin in 70. Great pick up.

Short but sweet. A great coin it is. It speaks volumes on just some of the Kennedy coins. Like his P.T. 109 coin. . The set made in Ireland. They all speak about Kennedy the Man. The four agreements say it all also. Thanks . I enjoyed it from one Kennedy collector to another.
