Kennedy Bicentennial Coin 14kt Gold GP Half Dollar Key Ring 1776-1976 $43.95


My grandfather bought me this 14kt gold plated Kennedy Bicentennial half dollar key ring when it was new in 1976. I cherished it, never wanted to use it, and kept it in perfect like new condition in a box in my jewelry box.

My big Scott-Irish grandfather bought a new Lincoln Continental every other year. I was really lucky kid and a couple of years after he gave me this key ring, he also gave me his 1977 gold Continental....which I loved, but it was like driving a cruise ship down the highway!

This Kennedy Bicentennial half is in pristine condition with no big scratches, scuffs, dings, or gold wear. Under a loupe, I can see a few very tiny and light microscopic scratches on Kennedy's face. The coin is suspended in a round gold plated textured frame and the screw-lock key holder is gold plated as well. I have not acid tested or scratch tested the coin for the kt of gold but it is 14kt gold plate or higher.

The coin with the frame is 1 3/4" or 45 mm wide. I've looked all over the internet, and I cant find another one of these for sale!
