Off-Metals on U.S. SMS coins are extremely rare
. This is just one of two known Kennedy Half off-metals that are SMS. There are three known Quarters struck on Nickel planchets that are also SMS.
Special Mint Set (SMS) off-metals are many times rarer than even proof off-metals, with just a handful known on any denomination. I have handled over 100 U.S. proof off-metals over the last 40 years but this is only the second SMS off-metal that I was fortunate enough to purchase.
