I have this 1964 KHD and wasnt sure ifitsog the SMS variety. Its has a strong strike and salmon colored toning on the back. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I also wanted to add its has a satin finish, unlike my other half dollars, which are just unremarkable. This coins finish is unlike all of my other half dollars.

It appears to be a normal half dollar.

Thanks! Ive just never seen this type of toning before on any of my silver half's. I figured Id post just to see, as finding a Special Strike is very unlikely. I have lots of coins, new and old, and have just recently gotten into this hobby. I find it very interesting.

Cheers!

1965-1969 halves were 40% silver. Toning happens on silver coins for different reasons. Usually because they were exposed to something in the air. Sometimes they turn dark, sometimes they make really cool rainbow effects. There is a lot of debate among collectors about toning. Some think it's damage, while others really like the toned silver coins, and get them graded and sealed to preserve it.

Great question by the way, and thanks for accompanying it with pictures. That is very important to help others see what you are referencing.

If you didn't buy it from a numismatic auction house for thousands of dollars,the answer is no.

Just curious about the auction house response. Ive found wheat cents and a couple silver coins in change that are worth much more than their face value. Ive even found a double die dime from the supermarket that's worth about $100.

Not much but one doesn't have to buy from an auction house for a coin to be worth anything.
