1968-D Half Dollar, Satiny MS671968-D 50C MS67 PCGS. A rather satiny, silver-gray surface texture greets the viewer of this Superb Gem 1968-D Kennedy, another example that appears to be recently graded, judging by the holder. PCGS has seen only a single MS68 example of the 1968-D. While the 1969-D is a tad more elusive in the highest Mint State grades -- they seem to have been made more carelessly -- the 1968-D seldom trades at the MS67 level, as most such in the last few years are done privately among Registry Set enthusiasts. A thin scrape appear on the president's cheek although it is not visible at all angles, and a small nick appears on the chin. The reverse also shows a patch of scrapes through the shield. Population: 20 in 67, 1 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N208) (NGC ID# 24U7, PCGS# 6711)
Weight: 11.50 grams
Metal: 80% Silver, 20% Copper, 20.90% Inner core Silver, 79.10% Copper

The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato is the culmination of more than 10 years of research into the Draped Bust Small Eagle half dollar series, one of the most coveted type coins in American numismatics and one about which remarkably little has been written.
This work will be the premier reference for 1796-1797 half dollars for years to come. Institutions having an extensive numismatic library or coin cabinet will find it a valuable complement to their holdings, and catalogers charged with writing up specimens for auction can now have an indispensable source of background and pedigree information. Likewise, coin dealers seeking to purchase one or more '96 or '97 half dollars for a client or for inventory, and collectors who own, have owned, or desire to own one will want this important reference work for their libraries.
