    When you break open proof sets for the Kennedy Half I guess you have to spend the rest - LOL!

    I think you are more correct than you think.

    Check the edge, if there is no copper band, it’s silver

    Looks like some one got into dads's or Grampa's collection and busted open a proof set. This not really that uncommon. When I search rolls of quarters, I find S mints and have even found a silver proof. Great find.

    It is not uncommon - nor very common - to find proof coins in circulation. Probably from either broken up proof sets (such as to save the half dollar), or disposal of inherited sets - just spending them. I have found a few over the years... Rarely silver, I think only two. Cheers, RickO
