New to this community and thought I'd start big, hopefully! I noticed mine has the same markings on Kennedy's neck as the one that recently sold as well as very sharp edges almost like a bevel. Any help would be greatly appreciated

To CCF , I have to say NO it's not a SMS Half .Just a normal business strike ( made for circulation ). A keepsake for sure and it's 90% silver .

to CCF. I agree not a SMS,but still special because of who gave it to you.

Denver mint, ergo business strike.

Aww darn, I'm including another picture I was watching a couple videos and the marks on his neck and the angle of the top of the W kept coming up as SMS. Don't ruin my hopes yet lol! Thanks for the warm welcome guys

Here is a real one, notice the die marks on his neck. I also read that one of the 12 or so didn't have the "floating 4" dot.

The marks on the neck are actually part of the design of the Kennedy half dollar.

And again, as Alpha pointed, it has a Denver mintmark, so it's impossible to be SMS.
