Is there a floating nose category for the Kennedy half dollar? If not. Why?

:welcome:

Your picture is a bit fuzzy to actually see the "floating nose" :mad:
I believe what you're seeing is called "Over Polishing", or a very "Abraded Die".

:eureka:
As the die fields wear down or become clashed during their use striking coins, press attendants will "POLISH" the die face. If this 'polishing' is repeated enough, there will be a loss of device detail... Causing a flat spot on that device.
A good example here, are the sellers hawking their Lincoln Memorial Cents with the "Floating Roof" on the reverse, as an error.
