1964 Gem Five Coin Proof Set - Contains The Scarce Accented Hair Kennedy Half Dollar.

It is believed that this scarce variety came about as the result of a request by Jackie Kennedy herself. It seems she did not like the design of the hair on the President's bust and asked (some say demanded) that it be revised. The U.S. Mint obliged and added a few strands above the presidents ear. It is estimated that as few as 1% of 1964 proof half dollars are the accent hair variety. It can take some practice to distinguish the difference in hairstyles, but there is an easier way - the bottom left serif on the "I" in "Liberty" is nearly gone on the Accent Hair and full size (when compared to the other serifs) on the regular issue!

All the coins in these sets are in gem proof condition and come housed in their original government "Flat Pack" cellophane holder and envelope.

    The value of this set can't be beat! The Accent Hair Kennedy alone is close to the price of the set! You basically get 1964 proof cent through quarter for free!
