    Are we supposed to guess what the bonus is? What am I missing?

    Is that the Crazy Hair Kennedy?

    Nice Accented Hair half.

    It may very well be. I usually go by the serif on the "I" in liberty. Can't see it the best but looks like it might be. Cool find if so.

    I am fairly certain that this is an AH half given that I’ve handled quite a few. The dead giveaway is the incuse hairlines. Going by die markers is very risky for any variety and they should always be identified by the variety itself, for example the hair on this coin, not the I or the FG.

    Yes sir, I agree. Inhand, the characteristics are easy to spot. In pictures, the lighting can sometimes hide features.

    Another good characteristic is a smoother sideburn on the accented hair variety.

    What a great bonus. I don't think I would have seen it even if JFK had pointed it out to me himself.
