It was a GREAT week for grading Kennedy half dollars! I decided to grade a bicentennial and a 1978-D. The bicentennial was from my step Dad's collection and the 1978-D is a recent purchase from GoldenEagle Coins. Upon reflecting on this weeks choices for grading, it was ironic that I chose these coins. They are all linked in time with the pictures I took. Let me explain before I discuss the grades I assigned these coins. In Sept. 1976 I had just finished a 39 month tour of duty in Bamberg, Germany and was headed to Ft. Stewart, Ga. for a short tour with the 24th Infantry, B Btry. 1/13 FA. A couple of years later in 1978 I proposed to my best friend, my wife. On April 21, 1979 we were married. 10 years ago today my step Dad passed away. On this coming Tue. I will have been married to my best friend for 41 years. Did I mention that time flies when you're having fun?
