The Red Book does not show a Type I or Type II 1981S Kennedy half

while the Coin Market Price Guide does. Can someone tell me what the

two types are? The price for a Type I is $2.00 and the Type II is

$14.50. On the 1979 Kennedy proof the filled or clear S mint mark

denotes the Type.

I believe the 1981-S ty 1 and ty 2 refers to a difference in mint mark but > while the Coin Market Price Guide does. Can someone tell me what the

not a clear or filled as in 1979. The difference in 1981 has to do with the

shape of the loops on the S and the style of serif, I think. From Ken
