    Condensed guide to Halves?

    Hi,

    Can anyone point me to a condensed guide of what to look for in halves? I know there is a guide at the beginning of this forum but the info is strung out over many, many posts.

    So I was wondering if anyone has posted a condensed guide.

    I know the basics of: "When searching in halves, look for anything dated pre 1971, (those are silver) 1965-1970 are 40% silver and everything before that is 90% silver. Keep an eye out for franklins, walkers, and any other non kennedy halves. Also look for anything with an "S" mintmark, proof coins can be very lucrative. Just the other day i got a gem BU 1995 proof half; EST: $30. Half dollars produce the most finds or "keepers"* as some people like to call them."

    What else should I be looking for?

    Thanks!

    1978 p - $2
    1978 d - $4
    1986 p - $7
    1993 p - $4

    Error searching can be profitable, but is very time consuming.

    The 1975 KC mint halves are getting tougher all the time. I only have 3 left in my collection. HH, JP
