Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Value of Kennedy half dollars

Question
Hi Dan-
I have a number of Kennedy half dollars and I would like to determine which ones are more valuable.  Could you list those that are the most valuable and the approximate market value for coins in very good to excellent condition?

Answer
Sorry Pete, but other than a few silver proofs, none of the Kennedy halves have any significant collector value -- too many minted and too little collector interest.

The halves dated 1964 are 90% silver, so are currently worth about $7 each.

The halves dated 1965 to 1969 are 40% silver, so are currently worth about $2.50 each.

The halves dated 1970 are also 40% silver, but do have a little collector value -- perhaps about $5 each.

I hope this helps,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
