Our Kennedy response to "We The People" Franklin holders...
"We Choose To Go To The Moon"!
-Kennedy Aspirational Holders-
1966 SMS Kennedy NGC MS 69 Ultra Cameo
Pop 1- HIGHEST GRADE!
As I mentioned last week, the Franklin We
The People holders are quickly gaining the appreciation they
deserve among collectors!
The feedback we’re receiving is incredible, with clients
thrilled at the eye-appeal and quality of each coin in these holders. And I
have to say- I personally think they look EVEN BETTER in these holders than the
generic, white holders! Toned, Ultra Cameo, brilliant… it doesn’t matter; they
POP like never before!
And now we have the KENNEDY holders here in our office, with
the title "We choose to go to the moon” to commemorate his speech that launched
our quest even further into space.
"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And
they may well ask, why climb the
highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the
Atlantic? Why does Rice play
Texas? We choose to go to the
Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but
because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the
best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are
willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win,
and the others, too.”
President Kennedy was one of the most influential Presidents of
our time with so many words that inspired America. We personally love this
quote because it shows our choice as Americans to push ourselves to the next
level, to expect more of ourselves as both individuals and, together, a nation.
He inspired us to be more- to do more! And to take pride in ourselves as
Americans in doing so.
And just as Kennedy inspired Americans decades ago to go above
and beyond, we are stepping up our numismatic standards with these new Kennedy
holders which feature lines from his speech with Apollo 11.
These holders will be primarily for coins up to 1989, since
Proof production quality was nearly perfected in 1990. 1990 to present features
a majority of examples with fully frosted ultra cameo devices and deep mirrors,
although there are some "gaps” among the modern series where this holder will
definitely fall into play. Much like certain years of the Eisenhower dollar
where many Ikes are graded Deep/Ultra Cameo but in reality fail to meet even
pre-modern standards, this occasionally happens with Kennedys in the modern era
as well, and we will be utilizing this holder for those instances. As for Mint
States, this will still be an important holder throughout all decades!
However the real cream of the crop will come with 1989 and
older, as many of those examples are extremely hard to find in the finest
condition. And just as with our WTP holders, NGC will
have a table on their website for the "Moon” population.
We are so thrilled to be adding to our elite selection of
choice numismatic rarities! And I know you’ll love this holder just as much as WTP!
Speaking of which… the WTP pops
on NGC are getting ready to launch, and we’ll make sure to let you know when
