The 1985-P Kennedy Half Dollar is considered a common issue, as it had a mintage of well over 18 million, which is somewhat average for the series.  Especially if compared to Kennedy Half Dollars from 2004 and after, where most dates and mint marks have mintages under 3 million. It is scarce in MS66 grade and in MS67 or higher, it is very difficult to find.
