Even for someone who doesn't collect JFKs, this is an uber-cool find!

Shall we start a guessing pool at how much the coins will be priced at on the TV show?
When in doubt... don't.

Wonder why the guy opening the bag didn't wear gloves when handling the coins?

$500 range?
:o :o :o

I was going to guess $199, but I felt foolish about it being such a high number.

Right. I cant personally say that number is or is not from a legit source but it wouldn't surprise me.

Let's see... a bag of 2,000 coins times $500 each = $1 million. :shock:

I smell a deal between Rick Tomaska and NGC, what a shocker. I can't wait to see what special label they come up with.🐍

There are many unopened bags of Kennedy and Franklin halves sitting around. The "added value" claim is these were bagged before the official release date, thus making them eligible for some sort of special label....whatever that is worth. (As most will surmise, I am not a fan of buying labels or stickers.)

Forget this NON sense as every so many years a HIDDEN bag of coins appears!
Want a real tip??
Buy Oil as it’s down at the moment
8 dollars!
Sitting at 10 dollars a barrel!
When was the last time oil was $10. a barrel???
Seems like a NO Brainer?
The world runs on oil!
Cars, planes, clothing, home heating etc etc!
That’s THE buy.....or stick with these half dollars? Let’s see what happens!
AGAIN my OPINION!
Go long on oil!

I've seen a few numbers floated regarding their thought on possible RCTV selling price point
My two cents
Somewhere in the $49 to $99 price range
If they paid 18X face as the tag on the bag implies they may have
Either price point would give a healthy profit
