I have never been able to take pics so I am sorry for that . But I appreciate all of you and your feedback. I do a have a mint 72 s Kennedy half, but I also have a 73 d that also has the mirror finish could it be a oddball , I do not think someone would talks the time highly polish an ordinary coin . I wish I could get someone here to reach out to me via email to send pics even by text as well.

It is possible that it has been plated which would not be unusual but as
stated, we will need photos to say for sure.

There is a video online of a guy using a dremel and polishing paste educating people how to put a mirror finish on Kennedy halves. Simple and fast. Why? I guess b/c people like shiny metal coins.

Same like Earle42 I recently saw a video as well of someone showcasing their polishing skills on different world coins, no US coins in the video I watched but would not doubt it.
I imagine reason being, the video is "satisfying". Few million views well worth compromising a rando Kennedy.

Don't be scared of the image optimizer. It will tell you the size of the photos being edited and the threshold you should be within. Just trim 100 width off of the photo until you reach what is acceptable
