Hi Everyone,
I have a 1966 Kennedy half dollar with doubling on some of the letters and numbers. I was wondering if anyone could share their opinion as I am only a newbie to coin collecting. Thanks.

. Can't tell anything from those photos. Need close ups of areas you see as doubled and less glare please. Also please tell us where you are seeing doubling.

@beach, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes having close-up pics of the areas where you are seeing doubling would be helpful. Thx.

Looks harshly cleaned. I assume you weren't the one who cleaned it, but just in case, NEVER CLEAN COINS. It completely destroys any value they night have had.
My best finds:

Also appears to have been plated as well. The SMS were even that shiny.

Like the others have said better pics are needed for sure. Just taking a guess though what you are probably seeing is Machine Doubling. Very common on Kennedy halves.
