Double checking this one also.

Sorry about the slight blur in the first two pictures again, I had to use an Ipad.


Grade if possible?

hello Grelko,

Does NOT look like DDO-001.

FYI... A very good diagnostic is mint mark placement. The mintmark on your coin looks low.

Good tip on the MM location diagnostic!

Thanks again for taking a look at this.

Here is a picture of the mintmark compared to the one at Varietyvista.

The one on my coin does look slightly lower and a bit farther to the left.

Hello Grelko,

I do NOT think this coin is a doubled die. Lots of Die Deterioration and the O in GOD looks more like Machine Doubling.

The "IN" looks like a strike issue; either low pressure or grease.

I dont look at a lot of Kennedy half dollars.

Maybe atrox001 can help out.

I'm thinking it's Machine Doubling on the O also. The W is the only place that looked doubled on both of the half dollars I posted.

I haven't been able to match either of them to a known double.

I don't look at many of half dollars either, the bank happened to have a few yesterday, so I got them.
