Why order this Clad Proof 1972-S Kennedy Half Dollar with a Charlie Duke signed label?

This Clad 1972-S Proof Kennedy Half Dollar is a fantastic option for collectors who yen for an America of idealism and hope. It was part of a mintage of 3,260,996 pieces. The coin was struck from copper-nickel clad copper at the San Francisco Mint and bears an "S" mint mark at the base of the obverse design. The date on this coin is quite significant, as it represents the year that astronaut Charlie Duke, who has signed the label, became the youngest man to walk on the moon.

Striking President John F. Kennedy Design by Gilroy Roberts

Gilroy Roberts designed the left-side portrait of President Kennedy that serves as the obverse design. The youthful President has an aura of calm confidence. The portrait is joined by "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1972."

Frank Gasparro's adaptation of the Presidential Seal features on the reverse. An eagle holds arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other as it guards a union shield. Thirteen stars above its head symbolize the original states, while a circle of fifty represent the current ones. Rim inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR."

Virtually Flawless PF69 Cameo with Black Core Holder and Charlie Duke Signed label

Charlie Duke, the tenth man to walk on the moon in 1972, signed the label on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided its grade. That grade is Proof 69, which means that the coin lacks virtually any imperfection that is visible to the naked eye. The coin has been set in a sleek black core.
