  1. A sms 1964 Kennedy silver half dallor was stolen from my residence by someone I know. I’m sure it was sold dirt cheap for what it was worth. My grandfather left for my son to have. I kept it for 53 years. Stolen on February 13, 2020. Bradford county , Pennsylvania. One was sold at auction latter that year I believe. Can’t find out any details.
