First post and thanks for havimg me. I have searched the forum and Internet with no luck. I am aware of a 71 transition error. While roll searching I noticed this.The presentation seemed more like my late 60s Kennedy's, then others in the rolls, so I weighed it. Thoughts or recommendations ?

To the CCF

Looks normal to me.
The tolerance on a half dollar is .26g which makes the maximum 11.60g
so yours is within the accepted tolerance.

The weight and color.As I'm sure you know copper nickel clad is about 11.34 Grams . 40% Silver clad is 11.50 Grams. Also I tested the scale to make sute was accurate.

If it's 40% silver, the edge should not have any copper color, and assuming that is silver. I'd get it into PCGS or NGC to certify.

Unless is silver plated?

The 40% half dollars do have a thin dark edge on them. (very small)

@sgtclough -- I also have a half dollar like this. It was the subject of a similar thread a few years ago:
http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...6012#2689730

The weights are so close (0.16g) between the clad halves and 40% silver halves that you can't verify one way or the other from even an accurate scale, due to within-tolerance variations.

I suppose you could slice between a reed or two w/ an exacto knife and see if you can see the copper core (assuming your coin has no copper core visible), or get an XRF test for a few bucks at a jewelry store.

As for me, I'm still sitting on my half dollar (pulled from a roll in the 1980s), knowing it's probably plated but hoping it's an error coin.

I will have to check those 40% Kennedy of mine, never paid that close of attention in finding the thin copper edge.

Drop tested a few to hear the different tones, but I never find any silver Kennedy outside the minted dates.
