Thanks for looking.

The 1964 Accented Hair Kennedy Half Dollar is one of the most sought-after varieties of the long-running Kennedy series. Not only is it a first-year issue, but it was also the first variety of the proof run and was directly critiqued by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.  For these reasons, along with a relatively small output, the 1964 Accented Hair Proof Kennedy Half Dollar is highly popular with collectors.

  Jackie Kennedy was directly consulted for the design of the Kennedy Half Dollar and was directly involved in perfecting the design for the new coin.

The Accented Hair design was used for striking proofs, which were among the very first coins struck bearing the new design. Upon seeing the early proof strikes, Kennedy requested that the hair detail be softened so the strands of hair appeared less prominent. The request was approved by U.S. Mint officials, and all proofs struck after that time saw the softer hair detail, resulting in the Accented Hair design becoming a one-year-only type.

The most obvious diagnostic of the Accented Hair design is the heavy hair stranding over Kennedy’s ear on the center of the obverse. However, another way to attribute this variety is to look for a missing detail in the lettering of “LIBERTY.” The letter “I” of “LIBERTY” on the Accented Hair coin will be missing the majority of the lower left serif, which appears in full on other iterations of the Kennedy Half Dollar. Also absent is the horizontal serif of the letter “G” from Frank Gasparro’s “FG” initials seen on the reverse.
