I know nobody here is jealous, I just was trying to stir it up a little. I get that way sometimes. My apologies. I will argue that looking at the "legs" length and trying to see if it touches the star or not from two photos taken at different angles is silly. I will try and get better photos, perhaps even try and imitate the angles at which The nice lady had taken hers at. I the mean time I still gotta ask the reasoning behind the raised marks, and their location on two, possibly more coins, in circulation? How did they get into those spots, incredibly in close proximity, and why? If not a die error, or an accident in general, who would take the time to make these raised silver Xs in these spots on these two, or more 1964 Kennedy half dollar Coins?

This proof having good pictures is a requirement.

The chance of these being actually error coins is real slim, and collectors didn't detect it for over 50 years.
It isn't like RPM or other minor errors that is more difficult to spot.

I will have this looked at by a professional for an opinion. Or even, after I send it in to be certified, then I will know, and post updates to everyone who has commented on these threads. Thanks.
