Collecting A Low-Ball Set of Kennedy Half Dollars
A Low-Ball set comprises coins of the lowest-possible grade one can find for the given issue. The concept emphasizes coins that are heavily worn but remain otherwise problem free; generally speaking, Low-Ball coins aren’t necessarily holed, bent, or otherwise damaged – just exceedingly worn. Building such sets can prove remarkably challenging for a modern series like the Kennedy Half Dollar, which overall has seen relatively little widespread circulation.
The Kennedy Half Dollars, Low Ball (1964-Present) PCGS Registry Set contains all the circulating issues from 1964 to the present and would optimally contain the most heavily worn specimens of each date one can acquire. While a deceivingly challenging objective, successful Low-Ball sets of Kennedy Half Dollars can be completed through persistent searching of bank rolls and boxes. Even non-circulating specimens made since 2002 turn up on occasion in these rolls and boxes, and can show evidence of true, noticeable wear.
