Default Netted an ounce!

Hey Friends,
I havenít posted in a while because I have been skunked for several weeks and that just doesnít make for fun posts. Having said that, itís time to post again. This week I found three 90% ers. I started with a 1964 Kennedy in the third roll. The next 45 rolls were totally uneventful, until roll #48. That contained two fine looking edges and as the pics show they were 90% proofs. Happy hunting all!

Nice! Those modern 90% silver proof Kennedys are very difficult to find. In the $50k or so of halves Iíve searched, never have found one.

Are those silver proofs or are they just gold plated? I got a 1972 I thought was a silver proof was just plated gold.

Gold plated halves are also gold on the edges from the plating. Those are real silver proofs. I had one in a recent hunt that was super white on the edge...so much so that I saw it when it dropped from the ripped roll. In all the coins that KT has searched He has only recovered a couple of these and they are obvious, with no gold tint at all!

Thanks Amc Rulz! They are definitely a neat find. I have searched approx. half the volume that you mention and have been fortunate enough to net three of that type. I'm sure it was a family dump of grandpas coins or something to that effect.

Hey Needler,
The S proofs come in clad and 90% silver. Fortunately these were the silver variety.

Yes KT, they are elusive, but very nice and shiny when they show up... a welcome addition to the collection!
HH!

As far as I know, no 1972 silver proof Kennedys minted. Just the clad S proof.

Great finds! I especially like the looks of proofs, and silver ones are even better. Congrats on another sweet hunt!
