Interesting Facts –  The Lincoln cent coinage represented new directions the mint had begun taking. Of the most notable is that it was the first circulating coin to feature a portrait of an actual person and not that of lady liberty. This spelled the beginning of the end for lady liberty on other denominations in years to come.Being the first coin to depict a real person is not the only “first” status that the cent can claim to. The Lincoln cent was also the first to bear the term “IN GOD WE TRUST”, the first cent ever to be minted at the Denver Mint, and in WWII issue the first and only U.S. circulating coin made of steel. MS60 prices are for Brown coins and MS65 prices are for coins that are at least 90% original red. The dates were modified in 1960, 1970 and 1982, resulting in large-date and small-date varieties for those years.

Mint – 1965-1970 Kennedys were minted in Denver and San Francisco, but…due to the Coin Act of 1965, coins were not mint marked for 3 years, so 1965-1967 Kennedys could have been struck anywhere, although Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco are the most likely candidates.

Interesting Facts – Kennedy halves are interesting enough, but with 40-90% silver content (1970 and earlier with some outliers), silver collectors keep their eye out for them too.With the price of silver going up in 2009, it’s no wonder they’re so popular with silver collectors, with a silver weight of .1479 to .36169 ounces of silver per coin.
