In 2020, over 56 years after the Kennedy Half Dollars official release, Rare Collectibles TV acquired a government sealed canvas bag with American Trust Company stamped on its face. Stapled to the bag was a tag indicating Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and Kennedy Halves, Mar 19, 1964. With the Kennedy Half Dollar released to the public on March 24, 1964, it was apparent that the coins in this bag were among the first Kennedy Half Dollars ever struck.
After being submitted to NGC, the sealed bag and the Kennedy Half Dollars inside of it were authenticated. Shortly after, the 1964-D Kennedy Half Dollars were graded, and for the first time ever, designated as First Day of Issue. This First Day of Issue 1964-D Kennedy Half Dollar has been certified in Brilliant Uncirculated by the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation.
NGC declares Brilliant Uncirculated to equate to a grade of MS60 or MS62 on the Sheldon Scale. This coin is one of the numismatic treasures that was discovered in that originally sealed U. Mint bag dated March 19, 1964. This listing now includes a NGC hand-signed and sealed Certificate of Authenticity, declaring that these 1946 Kennedys are indeed the First Day of Issue Brilliant Uncirculated coins.The coin you are looking at is 1 of the only 236 graded as Brilliant Uncirculated by NGC.
