1964-PRESENT KENNEDY MINT STATE HALVES

FULL SPLIT BEAK = SB or FSBK

On the reverse of the Kennedy Half Dollar the Eagle must exhibit separation from top to bottom of the beak running from left to right until separation ends at the snake and continues to the end of the beak. A coin exhibiting this depends on the full striking pressure the dies were set to when the coin was struck. This is called a First Strike.
