    First no-FG half found

    Finally found my first no-FG half in over 200 boxes. I've been having some "close but no cigar" reverses but under higher magnification, just a trace of FG could be seen. This week, I had two Brink's skunk boxes and then picked up three Loomis boxes at another bank. The first one was a skunk, the second one had a 1968-D and a 1974-D DDO. The third box produced 2 more 1968-D and my first honest-to-goodness no-FG 1972-D half. There is no trace of the FG (although the pic has an unfortunate reflection); the tail feathers are weak as are the lower stars under the eagle and the arrows.

    I got 2 40%'ers this week in a box. No errors, I'm still looking for the no FG error.

    Isn't the 72 no FG much harder to find than the 82 and 83?

    Yes. I opened the thread expecting to read of finding the '82.

    I don't know and I check them all. This is the first one after many false alarms revealed faint FG under higher magnification. This one is a no-doubter and exhibits more loss of detail from excess die polishing. Its a good example of how a high grade can be combined with poor detail for various reasons.

    I've had a lot of close calls with the 82's that didn't pan out under higher magnification. This one has no trace of the initials at all and very weak stars, tail feathers and arrows.

    Found a note that only 10 of this variety for 1972-D (FS-901) have been certified by NGC in all grades. Thinking it could be worth the $15 fee.

    Saw another note that 37 total have been certified by NGC and PCGS.

    Here are pics of the NGC recognized Kennedy half varieties:
