PR63

Edit: looking at 2 of these, I'm not so convinced they are proof, but I don't know this series well enough. I feel like I have a learning experience coming my way!

Is it possible this is a business strike with just really heavy cameo?

Okay since the guesses have died off it's time to reveal the grades.

The key is none of the four half dollars I posted are proof, they are all business strikes, though two of them (#3 & #4) look a lot like proof coins. Also all were submitted for CAC and only one got approval (that one might surprise you).

PCGS Cert #21761978 MS63 (No CAC sticker)

An early strike so it still is showing a lot of frost on the devices after the die was polished up and put into service striking coins. It's easy to see how anyone could mistake this as a proof, I also don't understand why CAC didn't approve this coin for a green bean. This date in a nice condition like this I expect to bring a double or triple bid cost. It may go over our budget as well. All in all a super coin and one of my favorites of the four I shared.
