    Franklin halves are all 90% silver. That’s another way to tell too. They were produced between 1948 and 1963 (the year Kennedy was assassinated) and so by 1964 (the last year U.S. coinage were 90% silver) they redesigned the half dollars to honor President Kennedy. From 1965 to 1970 the (Kennedy) half dollars were 40% silver while the rest (dimes & quarters dated 1965 to present) are made of copper core with nickel cladding.

    Any half dollar before 1964 is 90% silver. I used the JFK half as an example because it was the last half the US produced that had silver in it.
