Hey Guys I Have A 1964 Coin That I Think Is A Dangling 4 SMS Coin But I'm Not Sure.

This coin I believe has all the markings the slight salmon color satin finish and some of the markings. This is what I found ( copy paste) the case of the 1964 SMS Kennedy halves (save for #11 in the roster below, possibly from a different die state), the die polishing is multidirectional (it is more uniform on the 1964 SMS Lincoln cents, for example), and all 1964 SMS half dollars show various die markers that identify a single die pair. Die Markers: Reverse. An especially heavy die polishing line runs from the bottom right tip of the small middle serif in (O)F to A(MERICA). Another heavy die polishing line runs from the lower-right tip of the small lower serif of the F in HALF to the rim near the D in DOLLAR. Obverse. A tiny teardrop-shaped (or apostrophe-shaped) lump of metal hangs down from the underside of the crosslet on the 4, just right of the intersection with the upright of that digit.

The Present Coin
The surfaces are satin-textured, as seen to a greater or lesser degree on every 1964 SMS Kennedy. Attractive salmon-orange rim toning appears on the upper obverse and lower reverse. Some carbon-gray flecks are scattered around the lower and left obverse. The strike is remarkably full on all details, and a sharp wire rim around both sides is also typical. The "dangling 4" die marker on the obverse is prominent, as are the especially heavy die-finishing lines from (O)F to A(MERICA) and (HAL)F to D(OLLAR).

Yeah I have to agree I can't tell anything without a full front and back as well. Welcome and hope to see an update.

I'm not sure too from what you're showing in the picture if it matches a true 1964 SMS Lincoln cent?

Edit: it is best practice to show clear sharp pictures of obverse and reverse of the coin in question.

You will definitely have to post better pics for any kind of realistic analysis, but I thought I would post this in case you have not seen an example of the die marker on the 4:

In Memory of Crazyb0 12-26-1951 to 7-27-2020
In Memory of Tootallious 3-31-1964 to 4-15-2020

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

to CCF. You will need to post one full coin photo of the obverse and one full coin photo of the reverse and one or two close ups where needed and all photos need to be in focus for us to help you.
