The U.S. Mint produces millions of perfect coins each year. When a variation occurs, the coins becomes a “variety” – an immediate collector’s prize. One favorite variety in the very popular Kennedy half dollar series is the scarcer 1979 Clear “S” Choice Proof. (According to noted expert Alan Herbert, writing in 1993, only 428,000 of these Proofs were minted: they’re listed as Type 2 in the Red Book, the bible for coin collectors.) Not only will your collection display variety and completeness with this special Proof, but it will contain a coin few can possess.
As a companion, we have the 1979 Filled “S” Choice Proof (the coin the Clear “S” replaced). Both varieties are in a 2-coin set, and will add dramatic interest to your present collection! Of the two coins, the Clear “S” is the harder to find, and only a small supply are in stock, so add this set to your collection today!
