Why order this Specimen 70 1998-S Silver Kennedy Half Dollar with a Garrett signed 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins label?

This 1998-S Silver Kennedy Half Dollar is a true find for the discerning collector because it is the only Silver Kennedy Half Dollar with a matte finish, as well as the only non-proof Kennedy with the San Francisco Mint's "S" Mint mark. It was struck from .900 pure silver and is part of a mintage of just 62,000 pieces.

Iconic John F. Kennedy design by Gilroy Roberts

On the obverse of this coin is Gilroy Roberts's left-side effigy of President John F. Kennedy. The youthful leader bears a somber look.

Frank Gasparro's reverse image bears may similarities to the Great Seal of the U.S. It features an eagle guarding a union shield. In its beak, it holds a ribbon with the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM," while in its talons it holds an olive branch and arrows. Thirteen stars are arranged above its head, while fifty encircle the entire image inside the rim inscriptions.

Flawless Specimen 70 with a Jeff Garrett signed label

Jeff Garrett, the former president of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG), signed the label on which the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided this coin's grade. That grade, Specimen 70, means that the coin is perfect as seen under 5x magnification.
