Ron Guth:

The 1962 Half Dollar is common in all grades, including Mint State. However, it is one of the scarcer dates with Full Bell Lines on the reverse. In fact, only the 1952-S, the ultra-rare 1953-S, and the 1963 have lower populations at PCGS. No 1962 Half Dollar (Non-FBL or FBL) has been graded higher than MS-66 by PCGS.
