Default US Coins Being Overstruck Into Tokens

I purchased this coin when it was first available, a 1963 D Kennedy Half Dollar,
an overstrike on a 1964 Kennedy Half dollar, from an engraver who uses a surplus Denver Mint coin press

Kennedy half dollars weren't issued until 1964. Could you explain again how this is dated 1963.

Agreed. And I'm not trying to be a buzz kill, but it is illegal to deface currency to the point its rendered useless.

What about all those machines you put change into that presses it into a token?
Then there is all the painted bills and change. Would like to know what exactly you would have to do for it to be illegal.

Oh, I absolutely agree with you. You see a lot of those press machines in gift/souvenir shops and I don't know how they get away with it, but they do. Maybe nobody cares and it's just not worth pursuing legally?

Looks like defacing or mutilating pennies and nickels is fine.
