I got into a trade awhile back and ended up with quiet a few 1776-1976 Eisenhower dollars, Susan B Anthony coins and 71 and current Kennedy half dollars. I basically got them thrown in on the trade. I normally just keep coins that are gold or silver only. Should I keep them, sell them, or keep a few of the better condition ones and sell the rest? From my understanding they are worth right at face value?

When it comes to Ikes, I am a bit biased and would suggest you keep all of them.

If any of the 1976 Ikes or Kennedys (if you have them) have an S mintmark, they are 40% silver. I can't say much else without specific pics of coins.

Only some of them would be silver. If they are business strikes they would be silver but proofs come as either clad or 40% silver.

I can still occasionally pick up Ikes at the bank, and spend them (they're great for restaurant tipping) unless they're 40%'ers or absolutely BU with virtually no contact marks. Same protocol for post-1964 Kennedys. I won't take or use SBA's ("Carter's Quarters"), period.

Stick them in a jar and hide them. Emergency money if you need it.

For 1976 correct. The three coin sets (uncirculated and proof) were 40% silver. The normal proof sets (minted in 1975 and 1976, but dual dated 1776-1976) were clad proof.

For what it is worth, all S-mint Ikes struck in 1971 and 1972 are 40% silver. There were no Cu-Ni clad proof Ikes stuck those two years. First clad proof Ikes came in 1973.

If you don't want to keep them, take the ones that are only worth around face value and spend them in such a way that young'uns might get ahold of them. Might get a few new coin collectors started that way! I'd be willing to bet that 99% of kids today have never even seen an Ike or a Susie B, and probably almost as many have never seen a Kennedy half.
